Abstract: Water resources in the Las Vegas Valley Region (LVR) are of great concern to the residents and local water purveyors. The chief stimulus for concern is the rapid growth of the region coupled with a water allocation from the Colorado River that will soon be insufficient to meet demands. In response to these concerns, water purveyors and other decision makers have cooperated in a series of joint research endeavors to clarify some of their resource needs and potential management strategies. This report documents their analysis of water demand forecasting and conservation.
