Kyle Canyon Water District
The Kyle Canyon Water District is a publicly-owned, quasi-municipal political subdivision of Clark County. The Las Vegas Valley Water District operates and maintains the Kyle Canyon Water District, which supplies water to the Kyle Canyon community.
A Board of Trustees, composed of the Clark County commissioners, governs the Kyle Canyon Water District and has jurisdiction over its affairs. The board has sole responsibility for establishing rates, rules and regulations for the sale and distribution of water to properties within the district.
A message about Kyle Canyon water levels
Over the past several years, low precipitation and snowfall in Kyle Canyon have reduced the rate of natural recharge and replenishment to the area's groundwater system – Kyle Canyon's sole water supply. Lower inflow into the groundwater system is reducing water levels and threatening well operations.
Kyle Canyon Water District is currently under CONCERNED operating conditions, but declining groundwater levels are likely to trigger CRITICAL operating conditions this summer.
You can reduce the impacts of drought and high water demands on the Kyle Canyon water system by following Kyle Canyon's mandatory watering schedule, which is designed to help stabilize well conditions, for all outdoor watering. Doing so will help support water supplies for all community users.
More details about the well conditions and the importance of following watering schedules can be found in the Kyle Canyon Water Management Plan.

Four wells supply water to the Kyle Canyon Water District:
- Echo Well No. 3
- Echo Well No. 4
- Echo Well No. 5
- Rainbow Well
Echo Well No. 3 is the primary drinking-water well serving the Echo View neighborhood and the Echo View Reservoir. It also supplements water needs in Rainbow, Cathedral Rock and the Old Town subdivisions.
Rainbow Well serves primarily the Rainbow View area. Rainbow Well receives supplemental water flows from the Echo wells when demand is high and it cannot replenish its supply naturally. This usually occurs in the summer.
Due to elevation differences, water from the Echo Wells and reservoir can be gravity fed to serve downhill customers. However, water from the Rainbow Well cannot be moved the nearly 200 feet uphill to the Echo View neighborhood.
