CNRWA Held Great Basin Water Forum 2012 in Carson City, NV

by Great Basin Water Network Thursday, Nov. 15, 2012 at 2:43 PM

The Central Nevada Regional Water Authority held the Great Basin Water Forum on 11/13 in Carson City, NV to discuss ways to protect groundwater from being exported by the Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA) via a 200 mile long pipeline against the wishes of locals and despite warnings of aquifer ecosystem collapse by many scientists.


The proposal by the SNWA to build a 200 mile long pipeline from the aquifers of central Nevada to the Las Vegas region is motivated by the wishes of developers looking to profit from cheaper land prices far to the north of the urban core (see Coyote Springs). The communities of the targeted region have banded together to form the CNRWA as a response to better protect their groundwater and springs from being heisted by the developers to the south attempting to profit from stolen water. When the Nevada State Engineer Jason King ruled in favor of the SNWA it became clear that those oppossed to the SNWA pipeline would need to form their own coalition bringing together Native Americans (Goshute, Shoshone, Paiute), environmentalists and ranchers into the CNRWA team.


Great Basin Water Forum 2012

Finding real-world solutions to the disconnect between limited water supply and growing water demand in the West

The fourth annual Great Basin Water Forum hosted by the Central Nevada Regional Water Authority will present the latest information and discussions on a critical question to the West's economic future, valued quality of life and natural environment: "How can Nevada, Utah and California address the significant imbalance between identified sustainable water supply and projected population growth?"

Carly Jerla, U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, will give a presentation on the soon-to-be released Bureau report entitled "Colorado River Basin Water Supply and Demand Study." Ms. Jerla is the Co-Manager of the Study. The largest and most comprehensive basin-wide analysis ever undertaken describes future imbalances in water supply and demand in the Colorado River Basin through 2060, and it explores a broad range of options to help address the water supply short-fall. This short-fall in Colorado River water has led to increased activity in proposed water projects targeting scarce water resources in the Great Basin.

Michael Dunbar, Manager of the Emerald Bay Service District in Laguna Beach, California will give a presentation on the status of ocean water desalination in California and beyond and if it can be part of a water-gap solution.

Ms. Jerla's and Mr. Dunbar's presentations will serve as the foundation for a panel discussion on this critical question. Panelists will include county commissioners/supervisors, state legislators, state water agency officials, an Indian Tribe chairman and federal agency representatives.

An annual Great Basin Water Forum is called for in a 2009 memorandum of understanding signed by two counties in Utah, three California counties and the Central Nevada Regional Water Authority (8-county organization). Thirteen counties in three states are involved – a unique partnership in western water policy. The Great Basin Water Forum’s purpose is to discuss important water resource issues common to the nation’s driest hydrographic region, and if desired, recommendations are made to appropriate entities and organizations.

For more information contact: Steve Bradhurst, Executive Director, Central Nevada Regional Water Authority, 775.747.2038.

The CNRWA exists under Nevada's Interlocal Cooperation Act and has delegated authority separate and apart from its member counties. The Authority has a 21-member board of directors appointed by the county commissions of the 8 counties. The CNRWA members are Churchill, Elko, Esmeralda, Eureka, Lander, Nye, Pershing and White Pine Counties. These counties cover approximately 65 percent of Nevada's land area.


Mission Statement
