PCW04 Institutional, Commercial, and Industrial (ICI) Water Conservation Program Development

Half-day, Afternoon on October 4. $65 per person

Institutional, commercial and industrial customers (ICI) often represent a significant portion of water sales for a utility. Unique opportunities exist for water savings with these customers. This workshop will look at ten areas, such as metering, benchmarking, codes and standards, highlighting where water efficiencies can be improved.


PCW05 Benefit-Cost Analysis

Half-day, Afternoon on October 4. $65 per person

Conservation professionals are always evaluating water efficiency measures to determine if these measures are cost effective and meeting conservation goals. This workshop will provide techniques, tips, and tools for prioritizing conservation measures, quantifying potential benefits of reduced water, and how to use these findings for more informed decision-making.


Facility Tours:

T1 Clark County Wetlands Park

Half-day, Morning on October 4. $65 per person

The Clark County Wetlands Park (Wetlands Park) is a 2,900-acre nature preserve built around the Las Vegas Wash (Wash). The Wash, sourced almost completely by treated wastewater that connects the Las Vegas Valley to Lake Mead, is a critical component in our water conservation efforts. Over the last 25 years, engineers and biologists have worked side by side in maximizing this incredibly valuable resource towards management goals that include: stabilizing erosion, improving water quality, and enhancing and expanding the aquatic, wetland, and riparian, and desert habitats for the abundant wildlife that relies on the Wash and its resources. These management efforts are accomplished through a 29-member committee representing local, state, and federal agencies, private businesses and public interest groups that make up the Las Vegas Wash Coordination Committee. These dedicated representatives work together to balance the goals of stabilization, cultural resources, revegetation and vegetation management, threatened and endangered species and public outreach. Come explore the trails of the Wetlands Park and learn about the full water history of Las Vegas (named “the meadows” by the first Spanish explorers) and how this unique water cycle will help sustain Southern Nevada’s future.


T2 Springs Preserve Tour

Half-day, Morning on October 7. $65 per person

Join one of Springs Preserve’s experienced archaeologists as they present the many highlights of the Springs Preserve including galleries, exhibits, facilities and venues. With stops at the Origen Museum galleries, the green buildings of the Desert Living Center, the lush Botanical Garden, the prehistoric archaeological sites and native wildlife habitats on the trails, the overview tour gives visitors a sampling of all the Preserve has to offer and serves as the perfect jumping off point for future exploration.
