The Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA) is a cooperative agency formed in 1991 to address Southern Nevada’s unique water needs on a regional basis. SNWA officials are charged with managing the region’s water resources and providing for Las Vegas Valley area residents’ and businesses’ present and future water needs. Due to the area’s location in the Mojave Desert, the community strives to maintain a sustainable supply of water through a series of aggressive conservation programs and restrictions on water use.

Conservation Programs for Businesses: SNWA helps businesses save water and money by offering a number of programs and incentives.

Commercial and Industrial: Reduce your business expenses by taking advantage of a variety of SNWA financial incentives and services. Contact Dave Hunt at (702) 862-3764 for more information.

Golf Courses: Find out how to maintain a golf course while staying within your water budget. For more information, contact Summer Ortiz at (702) 862-3736.

Multifamily: Property managers of apartments, condominiums, homeowners associations and other multifamily properties can save both money and water in their communities. Contact Jeff Meckley at (702) 862-3766 if you manage or own a multifamily complex.

Water Smart Landscapes Rebate: SNWA will rebate businesses $1.50 per square foot of grass removed and replaced with desert landscaping up to the first 5,000 square feet converted per site, per year. Beyond the first 5,000 square feet, the SNWA will provide a rebate of $1 per square foot. The maximum award for any property in a fiscal year is $300,000.

— Telecommunications
Las Vegas’ early adoption of fiber optics and digital switching technologies has made it a sought-after U.S. location for companies seeking competitive advantages in the information age. In addition, the Las Vegas Valley offers the unique benefit of being virtually free of hurricanes, tornados and ice storms. This led to the selection of Las Vegas as the site for the Nevada Network Access Point (NAP), North America’s number one Disaster Avoidance Center. The NAP is a unique facility that provides access to more than 100 telecommunications providers. Las Vegas continues to expand its telecommunications network and is suited to meet the needs of businesses in the 21st century.
