Snake Valley Agreement

A proposed "Agreement for Management of the Snake Valley Groundwater System" was released a few weeks ago. This purpose of the proposed agreement is to establish "a cooperative relationship between the States of Utah and Nevada regarding the management of interstate groundwater resources." The proposed agreement has caused quite an uproar in Utah (click here for a sample news article from the Deseret News), as many residents in the Snake Valley area feel that Nevada is getting the better end of the deal.
