More Kudos for the Q

Or ABQ. Or Albuquerque.

Actually we get very few kudos.  As much as I love living here, this is a community in a state with lots of issues.  But one of the things we have right...real right is water conservation.

If you've not been paying attention for the last 10 years, but the lack of water in the Western third of the US is a major issue that is exacerbated by the persistent drought that various areas have had for five years now and has expanded in area the last couple of years.

So you've got to feel good when you see this.

Water usage in Albuquerque is at 20 year low.  That's absolute water usage not per capita.  Because over the same time period our population has grown 70%!  It speaks for a real change of attitude and awareness here that many of our brethren in the West would do well to adopt.

Now if we could just apply the same attitude to education and job creation!
