Blue Diamond Water System
The Las Vegas Valley Water District owns and operates the Blue Diamond Water System, which supplies water to Blue Diamond residents and businesses.
The water supplied by the Blue Diamond Water System comes from two wells that are recharged from precipitation and snowmelt runoff in the Wilson Cliff/Red Rock Canyon and Mount Potosi areas. Water from the two wells is blended before entry into the distribution system.
The age of the wells, as well as the continued decline in precipitation in the area, has caused the Las Vegas Valley Water District Board of Directors to approve a temporary moratorium on new water permits within the system. The moratorium also affects requests for expansions to current water use and increases in the size of water meters. More information about the water moratorium.

Business owners invited to comment on proposed rate increasesOver the next five years, approximately $10 million in capital improvements are planned to increase the Blue Diamond Water System’s efficiency and reliability, and increase storage and fire protection capacity. While federal and state grant funding will cover the construction costs of these projects, a rate increase is necessary to fund day-today system operations, maintenance of new water system components, and conservation programs for residents and businesses.
Business owners are invited to view a Business Impact Statement containing details about the proposed increase. Those who believe their business would be affected by the increase must provide information to the Las Vegas Water District by 6 p.m. on June 24, 2021. View the Business Impact Statement.
