    It seems to me that the BLM is simply desperate to approve this project. Doing so will ignore all the science to the contrary. It is true that the water flows in the valleys is all interconnected, and also not in huge supply. This year there was not so much snow, and there's not so much groundwater anywhere. What's wrong with human beings that we don't seem to be able to live in harmony with our natural surroundings? There is not so much for the taking! There is not so much for more people to use, not for growth in Las Vegas or for growth in Southern Utah. Even having "rights" to water doesn't mean "abracadabra the water is there for the taking." Water is dependent on climate and yearly snowfall in the mountains we take it from, and humans can't live without it. So humans must never plan to maximize its use--we are most likely to die in the desert if we plan that way.
