Question:

The desert and water, one item Las Vegas has plenty of and the other is already in an eight-year drought. In order to continue the over zealous growth of casinos and people moving into Las Vegas, a constant source of water is needed to match the yearly raising needs. This week’s Reader Poll asks the highly controversial question, what do you think should be a cure for the eight-year drought that is not over yet? Should Las Vega put a moratorium on people moving to Vegas? Should a tax be put on visitors using water? Should all the golf courses be closed? Should all new construction projects be put on hold? Should all grass be replaced with artificial turf? What is your answer to supplying Las Vegas with all the water it needs to continue to grow? What is your opinion? Why or Why Not? We want to hear from you!

I think water and public safety are the two most important items Las Vegas faces over the next 20 years.  I believe water should be taken from rural areas and redistributed to Las Vegas.  I also think golf courses should be changed 3 to 10 times what anyone else pays for water.  They are the largest waste of water for the masses.  Helen. D.  NY

Yes, yes, yes to all of your questions/suggestions. Become part of the solution not part of the problem. Kathleen Cahill  Richardson, TX

For the benefit of the state, a new source of water should be found. Limiting the growth of the city would be harmful to the city and state.  Brenden  Overland Park, Kansas

I think that there should be a limit on golf courses and any new yards that are not needed for human use in a desert condition. New building should have a user fee payable to the City for the consumption of water that will come about. n People come to Las Vegas to gamble and see shows mainly. Golfers can go to another location that is for that. Golf Courses are a waste of land and a contribution of chemicals and pollution for the upkeep.  Donald D. Turner  Brunswick, Maine

I definitly think a moratorium should be put on construction projects. Grass could be replaced but the cost would be high. As for visitors paying a tax, it is not their fault Vegas doesn't know when to stop building large hotels, condos, casinos etc.  Ellie Nosky  Canton, MI

The best way to help with the water problem is to tax its use. That seem to work on everything else. Also how about closing some of the golf courses. Since Las Vegas is about Gaming why are there so many golf courses?   James Anspach  Lakewood, Co
