Because Kyle Canyon's water supply is protected within the principal groundwater aquifer, it doesn't require the level of treatment associated with surface water sources.
Once pumped from the aquifer, the water is disinfected with chlorine to kill any potentially harmful microscopic organisms.
Every month, Las Vegas Valley Water District scientists collect and analyze water samples from Kyle Canyon's water supply to ensure it meets all Safe Drinking Water Act standards.
The Kyle Canyon Water District currently has monitoring waivers for certain chemical contaminants regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
A monitoring waiver means the Water District does not have to test the water for these contaminants at the frequency required by the EPA. In order to receive a waiver, the Nevada Division of Environmental Protection conducted a vulnerability assessment.
The assessment established that the water system is unlikely to be contaminated by these chemicals based on a study of:
- The geology of the area
- Past and current land uses (such as mining), and
- The existence of potential sources of contamination
For details about the specific chemicals for which there are monitoring waivers, please contact us.
