Las Vegas Valley Watershed Advisory Committee

One of the key recommendations set forth in the Las Vegas Wash Comprehensive Management Plan (LVWCAMP) was to establish a management structure to provide local oversight for the Las Vegas Wash Coordination Committee. Based on this recommendation, the Management Advisory Committee (MAC) was formed. The MAC was established first through a Memorandum of Understanding in 2000, and then finalized by cooperative agreement in 2002.

In addition to capital infrastructure, the local agencies recognized the need to support the research and evaluation activities associated with implementing the LVWCAMP, as well as general operating expenses of the Las Vegas Wash Project Coordination Team that are associated with the project. The member agencies of the Las Vegas Valley Wash Advisory Committee (LVVWAC) have established interlocal agreements to establish funding allocations for Wash activities not funded under the proceeds of the quarter-cent sales tax.

In 2008, LVVWAC replaced the MAC and focus expanded from the Wash to the entire watershed.

Eight local agencies make up the LVVWAC:
