The cost of steel is not likely to be an issue. Just part of a very expensive project if it proceeds.

Some of this is very good stuff. Historically NV has ignored the actual capability of the aquifers to provide water. Pahrump is a fine example. Basically the State Engineer allowed the basin to be over allocated while the vast majority of the properties had no water source. He has now shut down the drilling of domestic wells which will almost certainly end up in the courts. If in no other way as a government taking. The value of a plot is virtually wiped out if there is no water. And it is not clear from the statutes that King has the ability to shut down domestic wells.
Ok, I was referring to the local Judge’s order for objective tests and you were referring to the recent decision by King to yank the permits. Seems to me that whoever the State Engineer is he or she is going to face the same problem that King faced: coming up with an objective test that protects the basin from being damaged while allowing SNWA to pump the basin dry. The problem is that the basin was filled by melt from the last couple of glacier melts and the recharge rate today is not very high.

Californians have proposed a pipeline from the Columbia River to meet their needs. That is not going to happen from what I have read due to Internationsl treaties with Canada. Btw, I agree with Clarkcty. You can import Washington, Oregon or back east landscaping practices into a desert.
Yes they don't like to share their water BUT they want OUR tax money in Clark County, NV. Majority of tax revenue in NV come from Clark County, NV.

I had a neighbor up the street from me in Las Vegas (East Central) who had a nice green front yard and here's what he had to say: I just moved here from Los Angeles and I'm going to have my green lawn no matter how much it costs!

Could be they pay their fair share of taxes per capita given the taxes paid by mining companies. Any way, Clark County will have to live within it’s current water supply without lusting over other counties’ water.

As a kid in the 90's I remember going to Hoover Dam and seeing the lake completely full, overflowing. Doubt that will ever happen again.

Not even close! We have over 2.3 million residents and over 40 million visitors paying taxes here in Clark County, NV and gaming contributes more than mining!

As far as water, Southern Nevada will need to conserve even more and use the precious water resource wisely because those people up North will fight long and hard NOT to share water.
