The Mohave County BOS does absolutely NOTHING to slow growth. HUNDREDS of commercial wells have been permitted to be drilled. They’re not even metered!
UNLIMITED FREE water for the thugs exporting it in everything from almonds to alfalfa to dairy.
We have ongoing power problems in Meadview, apparently due to so many people moving here from California, as I discussed in a previouse post:
Supervisor Jean Bishop recently posted on FaceBook the link to Unisource for the current status of another major power outage — INSTEAD of taking action.
Governor Ducey WELCOMES venture capitalist water exporters like Al Barbarich, the proud destroyer of our Joshua Trees and our ecosystem, wasting and polluting our water, poisoning our air with pesticides – so he can get even richer. Notably, the almond farmer has plenty of power to run their giant commercial irrigation wells, but we can’t even keep our water co-op wells going.
And the locals, like dimwitted lemmings, are giving Al Barbarich standing ovations for a few hundred dollars in donations to local non profits.
Predatory capitalism at work. Take unlimited FREE water, destroy the environment, contribute essentially nothing, take everything you can until there is nothing.
And the demented population loves it.
Rape, plunder, pillage … with impunity. Nothing ever changes.
What the hell is wrong with the people here?
Under a shortage condition, water allotments to Arizona would be reduced by 320,000 acre-feet, Nevada by 13,000 acre-feet, and Mexico by 50,000 acre-feet.
90% of Southern Nevada’s water comes from Lake Mead. The Southern Nevada Water Authority says if a declaration is made there’s no need to panic. There will still be more than enough water with the region using about 250,000 acre-feet of water last year.
“The shortage that is prescribed on the Colorado River is really not going to affect Southern Nevada because we have done so much to reduce our water use,” Bronson Mack, a spokesperson for the water authority, said.
Back in September 2020, the Bureau of Reclamation released models that suggested looming shortages in Lake Powell and Lake Mead were more likely than previously thought between expanding cities and prolonged drought.
