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.
