The state Environment Department has approved a permit to allow Highlands University to water its golf course with treated wastewater from the city.
The agency made the decision, despite the objections of a group that fears the project would mean less water for acequias south of Las Vegas.
Felicia Orth, the department’s hearing officer, stated in her report that concerns about water availability should be referred to the state engineer’s office because her agency’s job is water quality.
