WaterSmart Innovations returns to the Wash
For the first time since 2017, the Las Vegas Wash Coordination Committee (LVWCC) partnered with the WaterSmart Innovations Conference (WSI) in October, providing a tour of the Las Vegas Wash to conference attendees from around the world.
Multiple stops gave attendees a chance to see examples of successful LVWCC revegetation, recreation, and education efforts and see firsthand the important role the Wash plays in Southern Nevada’s water management.
Thanks to the Wash, Southern Nevada enjoys additional Colorado River water flow credits, better water quality, abundant wildlife habitat, and outdoor recreation opportunities.
