Lake Mead with low water level says it's time to get real

Through Aug. 31, landscape watering is prohibited between the hours of 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. when it is most likely to evaporate due to heat. And remember, NEVER water on Sundays!

Plants and trees need MUCH LESS WATER than grass. Not sure what the difference is between sprinklers and drip irrigation?

Our future depends on you

Southern Nevada is one of the few places on the planet that recycles all indoor water on a community-wide scale. But the majority of our water is used outdoors. Reduce your outdoor water use to keep Southern Nevada water-secure.

What you can do to conserve

Drought and climate change have caused Lake Mead to drop more than 150 feet over the last two decades. The federal government has issued a tier one water shortage declaration for 2024, reducing the amount of water Southern Nevada is allowed to draw from the lake. Through efficient water use and community-wide water conservation, all Southern Nevadans help protect and extend our community's water supply.

Protecting our limited water supply

These conservation measures are projected to save billions of gallons of water and are essential to help Southern Nevada keep saving as federal water cuts reduce our current and future water supplies. From resorts and golf courses to residents and businesses, every sector of our community is making sacrifices and working together to meet future water needs.

Banned new water features and fountains on the Las Vegas Strip

No new golf courses and more water limits on existing courses

Restricted new residential pools to no larger than 600 sq. ft.

No evaporative cooling in new commercial development

Prohibited grass and sprinkler irrigation in all new developments

Adopted new water rates that sustain and advance conservation

Kudos, Southern Nevada! 🙌 Conservation efforts have helped the community reduce its per capita water use by 58 percent between 2002 and 2023, even as the population increased by more than 786,000 residents during that time. Keep conserving and stay water smart to help reach the community's goal of 86 GPCD (gallons per capita per day) by 2035.
