Las Vegas Bets On A Range Of Conservation Measures In Face Of Megadrought
September 21, 2022
Banking on its continued position as an oasis among the desert, Las Vegas is placing its bets on ambitious water conservation measures as regional drought conditions and consumption demand grow.
According to recent coverage from CNN, the city has outlawed the construction of large swimming pools or spas at single-family homes and banned nonfunctional grass. It reclaims all drinking water that is used indoors and implements strict irrigation schedules throughout the year.
And one of its more compelling measures can be found in a special division of the Southern Nevada Water Authority tasked with catching water wasters.
