Water usage

Homes in the northern stretch of the Indian Trails subdivision, which used a significant amount of water, along with the rest of West Jackson in July. The town is asking people to cut back on water use amid severe drought.

John Ryan saw it coming.

I think most people don't realize Jackson Hole is the largest city in WY for nearly 5 months out of the year. We surpass Casper and Cheyenne when it comes to occupied beds. Our tourists are not only supporting our businesses but gobbling up precious resources like water, clean air, dark night skies and most of all, solitude. Locals are guilty as well. I'd like to see limits to water use, options for water-hungry lawns, and rewards for using less water and higher fees for resorts, golf courses and hotels. We might see fewer tourists if we start advertising Jackson as the biggest city in WY for nearly half the year! Wouldn't that be nice?!
