Summer landscape tips
The heat can take a toll on your landscape, but there's plenty of great summer plants that bloom in Southern Nevada. Resist heavy pruning and add organic mulch to your soil to protect your plants and conserve water.
Water only on your assigned watering days or less and never water on Sundays.
You can depend on your water quality
During this challenging time, one thing you don't need to worry about is the delivery and quality of your drinking water.
A message about coronavirus (COVID–19)
COVID–19 is a respiratory illness, like the flu, which is spread person to person—there is no indication that transmission can occur via drinking water supplies.
Southern Nevada’s drinking water is treated using a combination of ozonation, filtration and chlorination, which are on the leading edge of water treatment processes and effective at removing contaminants from water. To ensure your water meets or surpasses drinking water standards, we also monitor water quality around the valley 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
The Water District does not anticipate any current scenario that would interrupt water availability to our community. Get answers to frequently asked questions.
We are committed to ensuring your water quality, reliability and security because we know you depend upon it every day.
