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.

Nueva información del COVID-19

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.

Pool cover rebate discontinued

Beginning June 1, 2020, the Southern Nevada Water Authority is no longer offering rebates on pool cover purchases.

The rebate program was established 15 years ago to increase community awareness about the water-saving benefits of pool covers. The program incentivized purchase of more than 45,000 pool covers, saving an estimated 5.6 billion gallons of water in Southern Nevada.

Incentive programs are designed to stimulate adoption of products in the mainstream market. Having achieved its primary goal of increasing the number of pool owners capitalizing on the water and energy savings provided by covers, the program met its objective.

We encourage pool owners to continue to use covers as a cost-effective way to save water and energy.

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.
