About Clark County Water Reclamation District
The District is the largest wastewater agency in the State of Nevada, serving more than 248,000 business and residential accounts. The majority of our residential and commercial customers are within the Las Vegas Valley, which includes the world famous resort corridor known as the "Las Vegas Strip." We also serve the communities of Blue Diamond, Indian Springs, Laughlin, Moapa Valley, and Searchlight. We have three water resource centers; Flamingo Water Resource Center, Desert Breeze Water Resource Center, and Laughlin Water Resource Center. All other facilities are treatment facilities.
The District's collection (network of pipes and pumps) system totals more than 2,000 miles of pipeline and 27 pumping stations to deliver the wastewater from the homes and businesses to one of the seven treatment facilities. An especially important aspect of our operation is the treatment facility serving the Las Vegas Valley. The largest of our facilities, (and in Nevada) the Flamingo Water Resource Center, ensures the wastewater meets high treatment levels allowing the reclaimed water to be discharged to the Las Vegas Wash and back into Lake Mead. Lake Mead is the drinking water source fo...r more than 95% of the population and businesses in Clark County. The stringent treatment standards are set to protect the community's drinking water supply as well as the recreational uses of Lake Mead and the downstream communities along the Colorado River.
