Utah voters place the healthy, outdoor lifestyle, the ability to live near public lands, and the low cost of living at the top of reasons they live in the West. Public lands ties economic opportunities as the greatest draw, but they worry about the state’s rivers and water supply.
Excerpt from the Utah Report:
"Water is another issue that weighs on the minds of Utah voters, with 82% citing inadequate water supplies as a serious problem. Voters also worry about the low levels of water in rivers and the continued pollution of rivers, lakes and streams. When it comes to addressing water in their state, Utah voters strongly prefer conservation of the current water supply, rather than diverting more water from rivers in less populated areas."
