LETTER: Officials send conflicting message about Southern Nevada’s water situation

It’s difficult for anyone to take our water issue crisis seriously when we read about our impending shortage and possible water rationing (“Forecast sees Lake Mead drop; enough to trigger ‘18 shortage?” Saturday Review-Journal) then in the same issue of the paper we read of a “new water park” to be added at Town Square.
