Change your watering clock now. It's the law!

Fall watering restrictions

Lake Mead is at historic lows, and it's time to get real. Sept. 1 through Oct. 31, water only on your three assigned days per week. Change your watering clock now. It's the law!

Indoor vs outdoor watering

Nearly all water used indoors is reclaimed, highly treated, and safely recycled back to Lake Mead which extends our water supply. But 100% of water used outdoors is only used once.
