Water Conservation Field Services Program
in southern Nevada, northwest Arizona, and southwest Utah

Service Area Map - click to view full-size versionWater agencies and Native American tribes in southern Nevada, northwest Arizona and southwest Utah rely on water from the Colorado River and its tributaries, and limited supplies of groundwater to sustain their populations. (See service area map to the right.)

The majority of water supplies in this area goes to municipal and industrial uses, with limited agricultural application. Most water use is concentrated in the Las Vegas metropolitan area, but other cities, including St. George, Utah; Laughlin, Nevada; and Kingman, Lake Havasu City, and Bullhead City, Arizona, also draw from these limited supplies. With rapidly growing populations straining water resources in these areas, Reclamation's water conservation program focuses on supporting incentive and retrofit programs for local residents and businesses to encourage the most efficient water use.

In 2011, Reclamation awarded more than $346,000 in grants to support water conservation activities for several local communities in the tri-state area. These funds helped implement urban water conservation plans, demonstration garden and retrofit projects, turf conversion activities, and youth education.
