A message about coronavirus (COVID-19)
COVID-19 is a respiratory illness, like the flu, which is spread person to person—there is no indication that transmission can occur via drinking water supplies.
Southern Nevada’s drinking water is treated using a combination of ozonation, filtration and chlorination, which are on the leading edge of water treatment processes and effective at removing contaminants from water. To ensure your water meets or surpasses drinking water standards, we also monitor water quality around the valley 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
The Water Authority does not anticipate any current scenario that would interrupt water availability to our community. Get answers to frequently asked questions.
We are committed to ensuring your water quality, reliability and security because we know you depend upon it every day.
Information about COVID-19 prevention and treatment can be found at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s website.
Attention Southern Nevada: be cautious of utility impersonators
In light of the current COVID-19 outbreak, the Southern Nevada Water Authority has suspended all residential and commercial site visits, which usually occur in conjunction with water conservation programs, site evaluations or other educational-based conservation efforts.
The Water Authority is aware of reports about nefarious individuals impersonating different utility workers to gain entry to homes.
In an abundance of caution, Water Authority is issuing notice to all customers and Valley residents that water utility personnel will not knock on customer doors unannounced; will not request customers open the doors to their homes; and will not request customers to sign any documents.
For easier public identification, Water Authority personnel drive official vehicles clearly marked with the SNWA’s waterdrop logo. Furthermore, personnel always wear a photo ID badge with the logo in plain view.
Customers can get help in verifying whether individuals who visit a home are LVVWD employees by calling Customer Care at 702-870-4194 during our current, modified business hours (Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.- 5 p.m.).
Firefighters from Clark County, City of Henderson, City of Las Vegas, and City of North Las Vegas save millions of gallons of water by using simulators during critical monthly training.
