But looking down from Deer Valley at the Jordanelle Reservoir was both beautiful and frightening. The water level is very low. There's a definite contrast: good snow on the mountain for skiing but the water level of the lake below is very low. It raises the question: Will there be enough run off to fill the reservoir?
This is a desert and there is a finite supply of water. This is a good time to pose the question: How I can cut my water usage before warm weather arrives and the need for water increases. What can I do to help?
