“Nevada has, on average, less precipitation than any other State in the Union.” Nevada v. United States, 463 U.S. 110, 114 (1983). Despite its arid conditions, the state continues to grow. Striking a balance between supplying the water needs of its growing population and not exhausting its water supply has always been a challenge in Nevada. Not only must the state meet the water demands of its rapidly expanding urban areas, it must also ensure that the farming, ranching, and mining industries’ water existing water rights are not impaired by future development.
