Nevada Drought Forum

Governor Sandoval established the Nevada Drought Forum on April 8, 2015 to bring together the best minds, managers and all interested stakeholders to assess the drought in Nevada, identify best conservation practices and policy needs, and make recommendations to the Governor regarding next steps.  In his Order, Governor Sandoval also mandated full water audits of State facilities and implementation of water conservation strategies at State facilities. Additionally, Governor Sandoval urged local governments and private citizens to conduct similar audits and conserve water in consultation with local water authorities.
