OneWater Nevada

OneWater Nevada is a collaborative effort of regional agencies exploring a comprehensive approach to extending the resiliency and sustainability of local water resources for future generations. This approach takes into account the interconnected nature of water systems and seeks to balance our community’s needs with the protection and preservation of natural resources. Through this effort, OneWater Nevada seeks to identify, understand, and implement water practices, such as:

  • Exploring ways to both conserve and extend the use of existing water resources
  • Considering long term water-resource and water-quality management issues
  • Helping protect the environmental integrity of our watersheds
  • Developing technologies and practices that sustain our quality of life

OneWater Nevada’s primary goal is to ensure there is enough water available to meet the needs of all users while protecting, and even improving, the region’s water quality and environmental integrity. This involves careful monitoring of water supplies, assessing future water demands, and developing strategies to meet those demands while minimizing the impact on the natural environment.

A current step in this effort is to evaluate the potential for improving efficiency, drought flexibility, and diversification of the region’s water supply by using Nevada’s category A+ “Advanced Purified Water.” OneWater Nevada’s research indicates Advanced Purified Water represents an opportunity to create an entirely new water resource.
