Study on water grab available for comment

A report to Congress titled "Water Resources of the Basin and Range Carbonate-Rock Aquifer System, White Pine County, Nevada, and Adjacent Areas in Nevada and Utah — Draft Report" released last weekend has some in Utah worried. Deseret News reports that the report raises concerns from Utah residents far from the Utah-Nevada state line about whether their area may be dried up by the thirst for uncontrolled growth in Las Vegas.

The report is available on the USGS Website as is a form for submitting public comment in the 60-day comment window starting June 1.
