(Las Vegas, NV) — A group opposing a $15-billion pipeline says there are alternatives to bringing groundwater from rural Nevada to Las Vegas. The “Sun” says the Great Basin Water Network is calling for higher rates and more conservation measures to discourage excessive water use in Sin City. The Southern Nevada Water Authority says the groundwater is needed to keep up with the valley’s growth. State Engineer Jason King will rule on the pipeline in March.
