Southern Nevada Water Authority head Pat Mulroy would have us believe that she is the voice of reason standing against the emotion and rhetoric of opponents to her pipeline plan.
But the rationale for it is flawed, and the science is not on her side ("Rhetoric aside, Nevada has right to its water," Opinion, Sept. 10).
Mulroy claims the groundwater is "unused"; this is deliberately misleading. The unallocated groundwater she refers to comes from evapotranspiration, the water the plants in the region use, without which they die. Without plants, wildlife will disappear, replaced by dust storms.
