It's a desert out there. Be water smart.

The Las Vegas Valley Water District (LVVWD) is committed to the efficient use of water.

As a member agency of the Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA), LVVWD adopted the SNWA's Drought Plan in 2003 and integrated water conservation measures from the drought response plan into its Service Rules.

The Southern Nevada Water Authority established a community conservation goal of 199 GPCD (gallons per capita per day) by 2035.

Since LVVWD's adoption of the Water Authority's Drought Plan in 2003, Southern Nevada has reduced its total system water demand from 314 gallons per person per day to 205 in 2014.

Tthe Southern Nevada community also achieved a new low of 118 net gallons per person per day in 2014. The term "net" accounts for water recycling, which allows water to be used more than once.
