Protecting Snake Valley
Wednesday, Governor Gary Herbert announced he would not sign the Snake Valley Water Agreement. The agreement was the result of 4 years of negotiations between Utah and Nevada over how they would share water in an aquifer along their border. Las Vegas' water demands are outpacing existing resources, but critics say drawing down the water would mean disaster for fragile watersheds, for ranchers and for Utah's air quality. Thursday, we're talking about the Governor's decision and about the next steps for protecting Utah's water.
