In 2017, Southern Nevada used 127 gallons per capita per day, representing a 36 percent decline the community’s per capita water use since 2002. Note: This number reflects water from all sources used by residents and businesses served by municipal water providers. Additionally, it includes recovered indoor water that was treated and returned to the Colorado River system and water used by 40 million annual visitors.

Did you know?

To prepare for ongoing drought and a possible shortage, the Water Authority has built a third drinking water intake and begun construction on a low lake level pumping station to ensure access to our drinking water supply at Lake Mead should lake levels continue to fall. The intake also will address water quality issues associated with declining lake levels.

The Water Authority has sufficient permanent, temporary, and future resources to meet all future planning scenarios over the next 50 years. (see report here)
