Delivering quality, reliable drinking water to one of the world’s most dynamic communities

Reliable, quality water. Service. Sustainability. That's what the Las Vegas Valley Water District (LVVWD) has delivered to our desert community for more than 60 years.

The Water District has kept pace, building and responsibly maintaining the city's water delivery system and serving customers through periods of extraordinary growth and community development—using sustainable technologies such as solar power and alternative-fueled fleets to increase efficiencies and manage costs of water delivery in the desert.

Today, the district delivers reliable, quality water—tested and treated in state-of-the-art facilities—to more than 1.5 million people.

In addition to a service area that includes metropolitan Las Vegas and areas of unincorporated Clark County, the LVVWD also serves the communities of Blue DiamondCoyote SpringsJeanKyle Canyon, Laughlin (Big Bend Water District) and Searchlight.

The Clark County Commissioners serve as the LVVWD Board of Directors and also oversee the additional community water systems.
