Water Conservation Program

A comprehensive water conservation program has been approved by the Lyon County Board of Commissioners and the Nevada Division of Environmental Protection. The program includes a variety of water conservation measures including consumer tips, industry recommendations, rate setting strategies and conservation incentives.

In 2007, the Lyon County Board of Commissioners adopted a new water ordinance that includes water conservation measures and assessments for violation of the ordinance. Basic concepts of the water conservation elements of the ordinance include an odd/even watering schedule and the prohibition of wasting water.
