    The project needs to be killed before it's started. It will do irreparable harm to the Great Basin Desert. One solution would be to expand Great Basin Nati'l Park. Create a unit of the park that includes the Confusion Range, Tule Valley and Notch Peak to the east of Snake Valley. It's all BLM land that isn't used for grazing or mining or anything right now. The park will than stradle Snake Valley and the environmentalists will all sue Las Vegas until the cave and let the idea go.

    Correction - "non-starter". Draining ancient aquifers left from the ice age is no way to create a sustainable water supply. SNWA should abandon this dumb idea and put their efforts into ocean desalination.
