Time for talk on the Water Grab

Note that there is an upcoming meeting on the water grab, this one focused on the federal Environmental Impact Statement. The feds are having a meeting in Utah to gather input from affected residents of the Beehive State. (Um, that would be just about everyone living in west-central Utah, that drinks the milk produced by the region's cows, that cares about the quality of the natural environment, etc.)

Public meeting on Draft Snake Valley groundwater report

What: Public meeting

Who: Kimball E. Goddard
Director, USGS Nevada Water Science Center

When: 1:00 p.m., Monday, March 26, 2007

Where: Auditorium
Utah Department of Natural Resources
1594 West North Temple

Why: A final review of the draft Basin and Range Carbonate Aquifer System Study (BARCASS), is nearing completion. The public draft report will be ready in July 2007. The six-million dollar project is being completed in an effort to improve the understanding of groundwater in Western Utah/Eastern Nevada (Snake Valley area).

Anyone interested in the latest scientific information about water resources in the remote part of Utah/Nevada, which is now embroiled in a controversy with Southern Nevada over the export of water to the Las Vegas area, is invited to attend
