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.

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.

If your grass is only touched by a mower, bordering a street, or hard to get to it's useless and a waste of water.
Our community can save 12 BILLION gallons of water per year by removing useless grass and replacing it with water-smart landscaping, which makes a big difference when we are facing worsening drought conditions.
The Water Authority offers a rebate of $3 for every square foot of useless grass replaced with water-smart landscaping.
