Stop the $15 billion Las Vegas pipeline

    1. Petition by

      Food & Water Watch

The Las Vegas water pipeline project is a threat to all the residents of Nevada. Residents of Las Vegas will see their water rates triple if the pipeline project is approved, while those in Northern Nevada and even parts of Utah will see the environmental damage from billions of gallons of water being shipped south to fuel unsustainable development projects and urban sprawl.

Sign the petition below to let the State Engineer know that you're opposed to the astronomically expensive and environmentally damaging pipeline project. Food & Water Watch, Las Vegas residents and coalition groups will deliver signatures to Jason King, the Nevada State Engineer, and elected officials in Las Vegas, on November 30th.

      I live in las vegas and I can really see the dangers here. We cannot continue to support unsustainable growth with artificial means. Let us Las Vegans live within our water means.We cannot continue to damage our environment to fuel our greed. As the old saying goes "we are biting the hand that feeds us" if we keep going the hand will no longer be able to feed our bodies or quench our thirst.

      they're are sustainable ways of doing things. stop worrying about lining your pockets for profit and start caring about the environment and the people you will be hurting by doing this project.

      I just watched "This is It," about Michael Jackson. The most impressive thing that I noticed is that he cared so much for our environment. Yes, I agree.

      The state needs to control and manage growth so that there may be water available for future generations. The desert environment is a fragile one and care must be taken not to damage it any further.
