Private lake and drought

I found the placement of the picture and article on the front page of the April 6 paper to be sadly ironic.  There was a picture of a young girl wakeboarding on the private, man-made artificial lake at The Pier in Stansbury.  Just below was an article about the extreme drought we are currently experiencing.  It caused me to think that, perhaps, there is a better use for this very scarce and precious resource, water, than as a backdrop for “lakefront” homes in this desert.
