Utah groundwater project draws ire from Nevada officials and tribal leaders

During one of the warmest year’s on record, southern Utah officials are looking toward the Nevada-Utah border for their future water. The proposed Pine Valley Water Supply Project is not only wasteful – it is harmful. 

“This project will siphon away water from Spring Valley, home to the Swamp Cedars, and Snake Valley, which holds much significance to my people,” said Delaine Spilsbury, Great Basin Water Network Board Member and a senior tribal representative with the Ely Shoshone Tribe in Nevada. “If Cedar City wants to steal this water, there will be damning environmental, spiritual and cultural consequences that will harm native people.”
