Southern Nevada Authority’s update on water issues

General Manager, John Entsminger, spoke at our monthly Political Affairs Committee meeting this morning at GLVAR.
Here are some interesting things I learned today:
We share the rights to the Colorado River with 6 other states and Mexico. Nevada receives the smallest percentage at only 1.8%. California has the largest share at 26.8%. It supplies about 90% of Southern Nevada's water. In the last 14 years, Lake Mead has dropped 130 feet. However, a big advantage that we have is that we are upstream of Lake Mead. And we have THE most successful water conservation program in the WORLD! Even though we have had a large population increase, we have had an even bigger decrease in water consumption due to this awesome water conservation program!
We have 7-8 years of reserves in our "water bank account". For our current growth/population, we would have water supply until 2065ish. The 3rd pipeline/pump will be finished around 2020.
Evaporation of Lake Mead is 3 times the amount of our water usage!
If you are purchasing a home and will want to put in a pool - make sure you check the title to make sure there are not "conservation easements" prohibiting putting in a pool. You do have the right to "buy back" some of easements, but it can be a bit expensive.

All in all, here are the highlights:
*Southern Nevada's water supply is secure, even with the ongoing drought.
*Intake No. 3 and Low Lake Level Pumping Station secure access to Lake Mead supplies.
*Shortages will likely occur, but will NOT impact our ability to meet demands.
*Plans for additional water resources - should they be needed -are in motion.
*The SNWA is evaluating opportunities for further conservation savings.
