The Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA) is proposing to install a 300-mile pipeline from eastern and central Nevada to enhance Las Vegas’ already limited groundwater supply. If constructed, the pipeline would transport 177,995 acre-feet of water (58 billion gallons) each year from rural Nevada to Las Vegas. Great Basin Water Is Life shows there is no extra water for SNWA’s 84-inch, 300-mile, $15.5 billion pipeline project.
