Water Authority Defends Pipeline Plan
(Carson City, NV) – The head of the Southern Nevada Water Authority says without groundwater from rural counties, Las Vegas could face future water shortages. Pat Mulroy’s testimony before the state engineer yesterday kicked off several weeks of testimony about the agency’s plan to build a pipeline from rural Nevada to the Vegas Valley. A number of groups opposing the multi-billion-dollar plan will testify during the next several weeks. A final decision could come early next year.
