This week, Great Basin Water Network and allies from across the region partnered on a press conference to highlight that three upper basin states are already overusing their allocation of the Colorado River while they advocate for wasteful projects like the Lake Powell Pipeline.
Additionally, GBWN joined with Clark County Commissioner and LVVWD board member Tick Segerblom to host three panels dealing with water shortages and climate change, indigenous leadership, and government solutions on the river. We were able to speak with top scientists, tribal leaders and former government officials.
It was a really big day for us and our partners.
