  • In 2006, CICWCD filed for groundwater in the basins of Pine and Wah Wah Valleys (WR Area 14, & 69) for 15,000 and 12,000 AC/FT respectively. 
  • CICWCD also filed on 10,000 AC/FT in Hamlin Valley but has not acted on such applications because at the time there were interstate negotiations between Nevada and Utah. ​
  • 2012-2015 CICWCD contracted with the BLM, Division of Water Rights and USGS, to conduct a study on water sustainability in Pine and Wah Wah Valleys.
