Herbert now likely to allow utah-nevada sharing deal
If this project was requested for Utah and not Nevada, it would most likely have
been nixed on all fronts...feasibility, cost, endangered species, the
neighboring states need the ground water, etc. This is approved because the
Democrats (including Harry Reid) are in control. This is just
another way for Obama to get back at the Republicans in Utah. It's cheap,
So if the Colorado River is not providing the water they need due to drought,
what in the world makes them think the Great Basin Desert is going to be a more
reliable source??? That is one of the driest areas in the United States,
they'll pump out the ground water and it will be gone. The climate is
likely to become drier, not wetter. It will be fascinating to see how this
plays out in 30 or 40 years.
Awful. Luckily Utah rarely experiences droughts.
