Preparing for the future

The Water Authority has worked diligently to maximize existing water available to Southern Nevada and to plan for our community's future. Since 1996, the Water Authority has developed and continue to maintain a Water Resource Plan that provides a comprehensive overview of projected water demands in Southern Nevada, as well as the water resources available, or expected to be available, to meet those demands over time.

The plan considers several factors, such as the potential impacts of continued drought and climate change on water resource availability, as well as the potential impact of changing economic conditions and water use patterns on long-term water demands.

With continued progress toward achieving the region's water conservation goal and adaptive use of its water resource portfolio, the Water Authority has sufficient permanent, temporary, and future resources in its water resource portfolio to meet the community’s short- and long-term water resource needs. The Water Authority will continue to review and update its resource plan annually.
