Clark, Lincoln and White Pine Counties
Groundwater Development Project

This Web site provides information about the Southern Nevada Water Authority's proposed Clark, Lincoln and White Pine Counties Groundwater Development Project (GWD Project).

Proposed Project

The Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA) proposes to construct and operate the GWD Project in order to develop and convey approximately 200,000 acre-feet per year of groundwater from seven hydrographic basins in northern Clark, central Lincoln and eastern White Pine Counties. This water will be used to serve SNWA purveyor members in the Las Vegas Valley and customers of the Lincoln County Water District in Coyote Spring Valley.

The GWD Project will consist of the construction and operation of groundwater production, conveyance and treatment facilities as well as power conveyance facilities. SNWA has applied to the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) for rights-of-way for these facilities, which requires preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). The BLM is preparing the EIS to evaluate the environmental issues associated with SNWA's request for rights-of-way. The granting of water rights is a separate State of Nevada process with decisions made by the Nevada State Engineer.
