Make sure your landscape gets water where and when it needs it most to survive the summer heat
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 9.5 billion gallons of water per year.

Get water smart with our new podcast
From the banks of the Colorado River and Lake Mead to the homes and businesses of Southern Nevada, our new Water Smarts podcast covers how we treat, deliver, use, protect and conserve water in the Las Vegas Valley.
Hosts Bronson Mack and Crystal Zuelke — along with experts from the Southern Nevada Water Authority who keep our water flowing — hope to make you a little smarter about the one thing that keeps us all connected — water.
We're helping researchers around the world learn more about the presence of coronavirus in communities. The research we're conducting confirms that genetic markers of COVID-19 can be detected in wastewater before the water is treated, but are removed during the treatment process.
Working together with a third drinking water intake, the pumping station will help ensure our community's access to water at Lake Mead—our primary water supply—even if lake levels continue to decline due to drought.
