Removing "useless" grass
A law enacted by the Nevada Legislature in 2021 prohibits using Colorado River water delivered by SNWA member agencies to irrigate nonfunctional turf. The law requires the removal and/or replacement of this turf throughout S.NV at commercial, multi-family, government and other properties. It does not apply to turf in homeowners’ yards, or to turf used for recreation at schools and parks. Nonfunctional turf must be removed or replaced by the end of 2026. Learn more in this SNWA report.

In anticipation of possible thunderstorms during monsoon season, remember to turn off landscape irrigation when it rains. Saving water when it doesn’t need to be used for landscape irrigation is critical for the community.  Follow your mandatory summer watering schedule—which prohibits watering between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m., when water can be lost to winds and high temperatures—until Sept. 1. Sunday watering is prohibited year-round.

If everyone in the valley turned off their irrigation on rainy days, we'd save more than 90 million gallons of water!
