SCOPING FOR THE PIPELINE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STATEMENT (EIS)
Below is the SNWA's description of its proposed action to build hundreds of miles of pipelines and drill up to 195 wells to pump up to 180,000 acre-feet of water from rural eastern Nevada. This unprecedented proposal in the driest state of the union will undoubtedly have long term and far reaching implications for all Nevadans. The information which follows is reproduced from the BLM mailing since the official BLM website is "offline" so the information is not otherwise available.
