Conservation in the West Poll Wyoming Press Release- February 10th, 2015

Excerpt from the Wyoming Report:

"Compared to other Westerners, Wyoming voters are less worried about many issues facing their state, from unemployment to air pollution, but they do worry about access to water. Six in ten view low levels of water in rivers as a serious problem facing the state. They are also confident that conservation, rather than diversion, is key to addressing potential water shortages. Three- quarters (74%) side encouraging conservation, reducing use, and recycling of water as an approach over diverting water from less populous areas (15%)."
