Say “NO” to the Pipeline


Some things are just bad ideas from the start.

The Southern Nevada Water Authority’s proposed water drill, pump and pipe scheme will devastate our people, plants, and animals in rural Eastern Nevada. That’s what a government approval of a Right-of-Way permit for a pipeline would do, according to a study of this unsustainable groundwater mining project.

Tell the Bureau of Land Management that its preferred alternative in the Environmental Impact Statement would cause unacceptable damages to our rural communities and tribes and to our public lands, springs, streams, and wildlife.

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) just announced its preference for an alternative in the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) which would approve a $15.7 billion proposal of the Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA) for its 300-mile pipeline. The BLM did not study cheaper and more reliable water supply alternatives.

Please send an email today to the BLM asking them to choose to avoid environmental disaster by denying approval of SNWA’s water grab in this century.

Thanks for all you do for the environment,
