Dear Nevada: Hands off our water! Love, Utah
by Andrew Kiraly | posted May 20, 2011
Here's a nice, spicy summary of the state of the Great Water Grab proposed by the Southern Nevada Water Authority -- and a forceful rejection of the whole crazy idea. It's penned by a newspaper in a state whose water would also get sucked into the pipeline plan: Utah.
SNWA Director Pat Mulroy has tried everything from wheedling to threatening to get Utah to agree to sacrifice its water to support growth in Las Vegas. But when she failed to convince judges in her own state, her tactics lost momentum. We can only hope that the courts and attorneys, who are already arguing over definitions in prehearings, will slow the process enough for opponents to gather even more convincing evidence that the answer to Las Vegas’ water problems shouldn’t be solved by destroying ecosystems hundreds of miles away.
