Band Council's Water Protests Posted Online

     WELLS BAND - The Nevada Division of Water Resources has posted online the protests of the Wells Band Council against the Southern Nevada Water Authority's applications for the Snake Valley underground water basin.
     The protests were filed in April of this year.  Among the reasons Wells Band protested the applications of the SNWA was due to the insufficent water in the basin for use by the SNWA, conflicts with current water rights, and exporting the water would be detrimental to the environment.
     The protests of Wells Band were filed along with protests from the Ely Shoshone Tribe and the Goshute Tribe.  The protests can be found here, here, and here.
