The Las Vegas Valley Water District (LVVWD) has been supplying Southern Nevada with water since 1954. The company currently serves more than 1 million customers. The district issues regular watering schedules for different areas of the valley. Non-complying residents are subject to fines. Certain types of private water features (including swimming pools and spas) are permitted.
According to the LVVWD, during a “drought watch,” residential fountains and water features with a surface area of 200 square feet or less are allowed. During a “drought alert,” fountains and water features with a surface area of 25 square feet or less are allowed. Fountains are permitted to maintain a re-circulating water pool to sustain pumps, pond liners, surface coatings and ancillary equipment, though under drought conditions, the features may run only between the hours of 1:00 – 4:00 a.m., or whenever freezing conditions require system preservation.
Public and private swimming pools and recreational water parks
Fountains and water features supplied by privately-owned water rights or by water rights obtained by means of a state-issued permit
The Water District is the operating agency for the Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA), a regional organization that works to secure water resources for the valley. SNWA also provides conservation programs for customers of member agencies.
