Letter to the Editor: Green will lead to greenbacks

Editor:

The U should be a pioneer for the Slow the Flow campaign to decrease water use in the state of Utah.

With all of the new development around the U there is a lot of land allocated to aesthetics, usually meaning grass. Grass, however, is among the largest consumer of water in the state, and is expensive for the U to maintain.

The U has an excellent resource in the Red Butte Garden, which could help to Xeroscape much of the grounds that are not utilized by student activities. This would decrease the maintenance and water costs, and set a good example to the community. That is, the U is concerned about the environment and that Xeroscaping can be very pleasing and cost effective.
