2018 Program Update and Funding Request [Donate Here]
For the first time in the 29 year of the Water Grab fight, the Nevada State Engineer denied Southern Nevada Water Authority's applications for groundwater in Spring, Cave, Dry Lake, and Delamar Valleys! BUT - he also approved SNWA's monitoring, management, and mitigation plans to drain the valleys. Our ACE attorneys Simeon Herskovits and Iris Thornton filed the White Pine County/GBWN appeal in September to overturn the 3M plans, while SNWA sued to undo the denial of water rights, and the State Engineer appealed his own decision.
We must seize the momentum and protect our progress. GBWN has to stay strong as we transition out of our "founding" years - after all, the threats remain consistent and constant.
To those ends, we depend on contributions of all sizes to sustain our legal work and outreach - and now our staff! Please consider a tax-deductible donation to GBWN to help us fend off the water grab. Thank you for your new or continuing support now and in the New Year.
Abby Johnson, President P.S. With legislative sessions looming and a new Governor and State Engineer in Nevada, there's never a dull water grab moment. And congrats to our outgoing communications specialist Howard Watts, who was just elected to the Nevada Assembly!
