County Water Update

Pershing County’s historic agriculture industry is drying up and unless upstream Humboldt River users agree to manage the conflict, the courts will have the final say. Elko County Commissioners hosted an update from Nevada Department of Water Resources on conditions of a court-ordered management plan. Ryan Limberg is a member of the Humboldt River Working Group that drafted the alternative to “draconian” cutbacks. Even if upstream users agree to management and financial assessments, there is no guarantee the issue won’t be litigated, as officials put it, “Lovelock wants water, not compensation.”
