Lake Mead water level triggers water shortage declaration

Law enacted to remove nonfunctional turf from medians, traffic circles and business complexes
A bill recently signed by Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak requires the removal of “useless,” or purely decorative, grass found around Southern Nevada business complexes, along streets in HOA communities, and in traffic circles and medians.
The law does not apply to grass in homeowners’ yards or grass used for recreation at schools and parks.
The new law requires nonfunctional grass be removed by the end of 2026 and will save our community an estimated 9.6 billion gallons of water per year.
The law also established an advisory committee to make recommendations to the Water Authority Board of Directors about the definition of nonfunctional turf and the process to implement the legislation.
