FILE - In this May 22, 2007 file photo, Construction workers build a luxury home at the newly developed site of Toll Brothers in Henderson, Nev. The Southern Nevada Water Authority wants to draw more than 11.3 billion gallons of groundwater a year from from the Delamar, Dry Lake, Cave valleys and all in central Lincoln County. That amount of water, expanded through reuse and other means, could supply more than 100,000 homes in the fast-growing Las Vegas area. A Nevada judge has rejected plans for Las Vegas to draw water from rural valleys straddling the Nevada-Utah state line to slake the thirst of Sin City residents and tourists. (AP Photo/Jae C.
