    In the middle of a nationwide drought, towns turning off water during the day, and the hottest summer on record here, a new water park resort was just passed to be built here in the Phoenix area. This is obviously the best place for it, it is almost mid November and it was 94 yesterday (a record). But what about the water? Evaporation is one of the worst wasters of water; why do we water at 4am in the summer so irrigation goes down instead of up? Just another draw on our seemingly "endless" supply of water here in one of the driest places in the country.

    This place should be awesome though!!! Lots of fun, though Ill be out of here before its done, hopefully.

    Anyone looking for some pipe fitting/plumbing/irrigation jobs, Ive got a project for you!

    We're getting one as well, and maybe a second one. Great for the kids now, bad for the kids in the future when water is all gone. Or an empty park/building because they had to close it due to no water. :dizzy:

    I think one is going to be indoor, attached or close to a new hotel. But the ones in Denver open around mid to late May, and close sometime after Labor Day. It does boggle the mind, doesn't it.

    Great natural water park (spring fed) that Jerry will know is Scleitterbahn (spelling?) in New Braunsfel, Tx. Personally if I was dictator for a day all water parks would be shut down.

    krill and fimco....

    you guys have forgotten what it is like to be a kid??? Water parks are great fun for children.

    As for water shortages, It does not make sense why all coastal areas do not desalinate water...... this would make a HUGE difference in the water usage as a lot of LARGE cities are next to oceans..
