Las Vegas is Running out of Water (and it’s California’s Fault)

Many people are familiar with the drought that is taking place all across the southwest portion of the United States right now. Much of that attention is directed at Las Vegas right now because Lake Mead and Hoover Dam are in our backyard. There’s no shortage of reports in 2021 talking about Lake Mead drying up due to the low water levels. There are many myths about who uses the most water in the Las Vegas area, and who uses the most amount of water that comes from the Colorado River.

In this video you’re going to see example after example over decades of how the Las Vegas Valley Water District, Southern Nevada Water Authority, City of Las Vegas, Clark County and the Nevada State Legislature have made efforts to conserve water, and make sure that the Vegas Valley does not go over it’s 2% allotment of water from the Colorado River. It’s because of these conservation efforts that southern Nevada is in a better position when it comes to water than most people realize.


Nevada could get some of California’s share of Lake Mead. Here’s how.
