Nevada and Utah Legislators Meet

Members of the Utah and Nevada legislatures gathered recently in Snake Valley, on the border of Nevada and Utah, to speak with local ranchers of the high desert – concerning Southern Nevada Water Authority's intent to pump out massive amounts of water from the valley. The ranchers are convinced this will kill the vegetation, and leave devastated dust bowls in the drained valleys for up to 300 miles north of Las Vegas. The ranchers showed examples of flora damage and numerous dried up springs that have already occurred from a small fraction of the water pumping that Southern Nevada Water Authority intends to do.
