An important consideration is the type/quality of water used.

Drinking water vs mon-potable ditch water are not the same thing.

Using a ton of water for a golf course vs letting most that water flow through drainage ditches and evaporate or collect in retention ponds that breed mosquitoes is a nuance that would be hard to properly convey to the generally uneducated public.

In utah there is runoff from the mountains that is collected in reservoirs. That water is used pumped through the irrigation system to most places including golf courses, farms, and houses for lawns.

This system is separate from what they call "culinary water" which is used for everything inside the house. Comparing golf course's water usage to the similar acreage of a residential zone won't be exact, but here's some comparisons. In utah parks, schools, golf courses, and businesses don't really have restrictions on water usage. The irrigation system isn't metered for anyone, but residents are only allowed to use it on certain days on threat of fine if they're caught. Acre per acre houses will use less irrigation water due to there being less grass as houses, roads, driveways, sidewalks, etc will cover most of that area. In addition to that new builds in Utah right now (even the expensive houses) have TINY lawns. These massive houses are on lots measured by sqft not acre.

Conversely culinary water usage would skyrocket. The sources for the culinary water is different that that of the irrigation water. It's from wells and then treated.

However the complaints in Utah right now are due to the departments that handle the irrigation water asking residents more and more often to cut back usage, but residents see it being wasted spraying sidewalks by businesses, keeping golf courses hyper green when they don't go golfing, nor anybody they know golfs. And their tiny lawn and garden barely getting enough to stay greenish in the shade.

Honestly, a lot of extreme religious conservatives literally do think like that. They legitimately believe that the rapture is just around the corner, so there's no point in planning too far into the future. No need to make laws regarding renewable energy, climate change, or any other looming issues because Jesus is going to come back and take them up to heaven within in the next few years. It's pretty crazy.

It is piped. At every house there is a shutoff box with a sediment filter. You're supposed to clean the filter annually, they announce when you can begin using it for the year and when they shut it off for winter so you can close the valve and not pop sprinkler heads while they pressurize the system in the spring. Another way they cut back usage is pressurizing the system later and later in the year.

I've seen people water on the wrong days all the time. I've also seen people use hoses from their houses to water on their off days. Which is kind of counterproductive as that water is the metered treated water, and the whole purpose of the irrigation system is to not use that for watering your lawn.

Oh and I forgot to mention that the golf courses aren't even profitable. They're subsidised by taxes to stay afloat because of corrupt city councils and idiots like those quoted in the article.

True the problem is a lack of regulation in American capitalism and a excess of allowing corporate personhood that allows corporations do directly donate to politicians. The existence of lobbying itself is probably the biggest problem as it allows wealth to matter more than any group Of constituents and as a result politicians are so easily bought no matter What party they are a member of.

The fact is capitalism itself isn’t the issue it’s a lack of meaningful regulation of corporations, a lack of consequences for those corporations, and a system that rewards The rich hoarding wealth instead of giving the government the needed teeth to enforce tax Law on the wealthy.

It’s a known fact that the irs has blatantly admitted that they do not persue auditing and taking the wealthy to court for tax dodging due to the fact that they know the wealthy have the financial means to tie the irs in court for years before the irs will see a single dime of those taxes. The irs knows that if they took the hyper Rick to court the irs would go bankrupt from the legal fees of trying to enforce Tax Law and therefore they don’t even attempt to. Instead they openly admit that’s why if you are poor or middle class you are far More Likely to be audited and to be taken to court for tax crime. Because they knew normal people can’t fight the irs and we will end up giving them the money we owe.

The fact is the irs has admitted they don’t enforce Tax Law on the rich because they fucking can’t. And instead they keep a vice like grip on forcing the poor to pay every dime they can because of the poor are the only they can count on to pay their taxes They will squeeze us dry to make us for what they can’t force out of the hands of the rich.

This is how fucked the US is this is why we will never see nationalized health care, or a raise in federal min wage. Not that it will matter soon as they raise the non wage they people Renting houses will just raise the rent because they know they can now squeeze more money out of the working class so what the hell does raising the min wage even mater for anyways.

this is why every cent I have paid into Medicare and social security will end up gone And I will be told it don’t exist when I’m 75. This is why I will never be able to retire. Because the taxes I paid were taken and paid for my parents to retire while I will get to see jack shit of it.

And there is no way to change any of it because our system is so fucking broken the only thing short of a full blown revolution will do jack shit.

And the scary part is the right actually believes it’s the people for human rights that are the fascists, I literially saw just to say these jackasses arguing that the real Fascism is not letting people have the free speech to say racist jokes without being canceled.

I’ve within the last 24 hours literially heard the argument that the real naziism is not being allowed to call a Jew a k***. That’s right the real Nazis are the people who tell you not to be antisemitic. Because to the right any inhibition of the freedom to persecute and oppress is fascism. And guess what the fucking moderates eat it is and then say both sides are fascists.

No they fucking aren’t. There’s only one side that’s preaching ultranationalist rhetoric , yes the democrats are Shit. But I don’t even know what to call the republicans? The bar is already fucking low with the democrats there isn’t a comparison you can use for what they are. They openly applaud Hsing fucking Nazis at their rallies they broadly boast we Are All domestic terrorists.

And the moderates still go duuurrr huuurrr both sides!

You want to know why America is unrepairable fucked. Because the average white moderate American can not tell the difference between Republican fascism and Democrats just saying maybe we should have laws protecting human rights while also not having the spine to Actually push for that.

So yes this country is irreparably fucked and I would be so much more mentally healthy if I just Ignored it all Said not my problem And just became Comfortable that as a white cis het male I will be on the side that benefits from fascism and said not my problem, ignore the news because the fascism isnt hurting me yet, And as long as I don’t criticize those in power I will be fine.

Fuck this country I should really just give up stop Worrying and just make myself comfortable with being a Nazi if it comes to it. Because guess what no one wants to listen to me shouting into the void so what’s the fucking point in it

It's even more gut-wrenching that a lot of the brokenness stems from these systems dating back to naive early implementations that didn't have the foresight to anticipate perverse incentives and exploitable flaws. (Newer or newly-reformed countries get to use hindsight instead. Much easier.)

Citizens United v. FEC was simultaneously the worst decision on American legal history and a symptom of underlying systemic faults. Unfortunately they were already almost unfixable by then.

It's possible to understand that the vast majority of water usage goes to unnecessary or wasteful agricultural and industrial uses and still be upset that a comparatively small but still massive amount is publicly allocated for the exclusive use of a tiny, affluent portion of the population.

It's also appropriate to be angry when one justification for this decision is that water is also used for things like schools and parks, as though there is no difference between the use for universally accessible public benefit and private businesses that cater to the wealthy.

And it's especially appropriate to be angry at the paternalistic Utah state legislature for restricting access to public information and otherwise undermining the will of the people on a regular basis.
