Goshute Tribes Fight SNWA Pipeline to Vegas (tags)
The clock is ticking on the 60-day review period for the environmental assessment report on a controversial water pipeline along the Nevada-Utah border that the Goshute Confederated Tribes say would draw down their own water supplies and impede economic development as well as compromise sacred sites. The eight-foot-diameter pipeline would carry water 300 miles from eastern Nevada to Las Vegas, pumping about 84,000 acre-feet of water annually from Goshute and other tribal lands.

NV State Engineer Rules Against Goshute Tribe and in Favor of SNWA Pipeline (tags)

It could be said that removal of water from the sovereign Goshute Nation by the SNWA is a form of cultural genocide.
