Clark County, Nevada is currently implementing a Geographic Information System (GIS) to support County planning and engineering functions. The Regional Flood Control District is in the process of determining requirements for utilizing the GIS to support its responsibilities for flood control facility planning, conducting environmental mitigation, regulating land development activities for the County, permitting and monitoring stormwater discharges, and operating an Advanced Flood Warning System. This paper describes key activities of the Flood Control District, related GIS applications, and data requirements of those applications.
