Correct. And many of the mines up north are foreign owned, so I donít know how the taxes work in that situation. Mining leaves a lot of environmental damage. Iíd be taxing the foreign owners very heavily if I was in charge because the cleanup is going to cost Nevada plenty.

Requires intelligent politicians. Oxymoron.

Taxes generated by Clark County business activities have zero to do with transferring water from northern counties to Clark County.

Infrastructure spending, healthcare, law and order, education, pension........ incurred up in Northern and Central Nevada...........funds come from Southern Nevada. We pay 3/4 of the taxes generated in the state. The argument presented earlier, they don't mind taking our tax dollars in Southern Nevada but when it comes to sharing what they have, it's a no go.

White Pine County gets about $8 million a year from Clark County. The attitude of the residents of White Pine County is that Clark County can keep its measley $8 million and White Pine County will keep is water.

I'm a pretty firm believer that if/when water becomes an issue here, there is simply too much money tied up here to let the area go to waste. Something will be done to keep the water flowing and the cash coming in.

Even if water stops passing the dam, Las Vegas will still be getting its own water from the lake, there just won't be anything running down stream. I read the water study and with the 3rd straw put in, we're good for at a minimum the next 25 years, if not longer. We also have an aquifer we can pump... we just primarily don't except for in the deep summer, to my understanding.

I haven't checked lake levels in a while, but the last time I checked an interesting thing they are not telling you is that the 2 upstream dams are(were) full to capacity. They are not letting all of the water flow downstream into Lake Mead like they used to, therefore, Lake Mead is depleting. However, last I checked, the lake level was actually higher than it was at the same time a few years ago.

Send back all the funds and stop collecting then, see how fast those places turn into ghost towns with the lack of support from our tax money.

Yeah that third straw, its like a sink drain we'll have access to the last drop at Lake Mead, hahahaha and when that time comes, it's civil war.

White Pine County doesnít really need that $8 million but the main point is this: the tax money doesnít belong to Clark County, it belongs to the State of Nevada.

Lake Mead isnít going dry anytime soon. As far as I can tell, Clark County will always be able to access itís allocation of water.
