Summer temperatures top 115 degrees in a scorched environment that in a banner year receives a paltry 4 inches of rain. The inhospitable conditions have pushed officials to develop water conservation programs considered models worldwide.
Las Vegas seeks water solution
"But if something does go wrong," he added, "we're in the business of making contingency plans."
They say the city has been cavalier about looming water shortages, pointing to projects such as Lake Las Vegas, a 320 acre artificial oasis built with man made rivers and waterfalls amid the high end homes and luxury resorts.
Future droughts and a warming climate change could spell trouble for the city's 2 million residents and its 40 million annual visitors. Davis.
your means, but that doesn't fit with the image of Las Vegas," said Steve Erickson, Utah coordinator for the Great Basin Water Network, an advocacy group. "These people need to remember that it's a city built upon an inhospitable desert. Gucci Clutch
Many water experts say Las Vegas needs to immediately take a series of no nonsense steps to help control its water shortage: Cut indoor as well as outdoor use; charge much more for water and punish abusers with precipitously higher rates; and start disclosing the rate of a neighbor's water use in residential bills to create more social pressure to conserve.
Still, water officials here acknowledge that their challenge is to keep Las Vegas livable while reining in several older neighborhoods that have resisted taking out lawns and other conservation measures.

The Colorado River provides water for 40 million people across the Southwest the majority of them in cities such as Las Vegas. The region's population is expected to almost double by 2060. In that time, Las Vegas will gain 1 million residents, forecasters say.
Environmentalists blast the proposed pipeline from central Nevada as irresponsible, calling it a resource grab comparable to William Mulholland's move that created an aqueduct to transport water south from California's Owens Valley to help expand Los Angeles a century ago.
But water use and how to curtail it poses a complex puzzle, officials say. Take the casinos. "The Strip uses only 3 percent of the region's water but supplies 70 percent of its economy," he said. "That's not a bad bargain."
LAS VEGAS Deep beneath Lake Mead, a 23 foot tall tunnel boring machine grinds through stubborn bedrock in a billion dollar effort to make sure water continues flowing to this thirsty resort city. Due for completion in fall 2015, critics say it may not provide a long term solution.
An ongoing drought and the Colorado River's stunted flow have shrunk Lake Mead to its lowest level in generations. The reservoir, which supplies 90 percent of Las Vegas' water, is ebbing as though a plug had been pulled from a bathtub drain. By mid Gucci Purse Navy Blue
It was done in part with a $200 million fund to provide rebates for Gucci Bags Collection 2017 replacing grass with desert landscapes. Las Vegas also recycles all water that goes down the drain from dishwashers, sinks, showers and even toilets, and after reprocessing, it is pumped back into Lake Mead. With each gallon returned to the reservoir, the city gets to take another out.
What were they thinking?"
Officials say they have prepared for myriad possible scenarios, including an emergency slashing of Las Vegas' annual water allotment. "It's important to remember that this would happen over a period of years, not months and not weeks," Davis said of such a cutback. "You don't wake up one morning and ask, 'Where did all the water go?'"
For officials here, the scenario signifies a formidable job: providing water for the nation's driest city. Las Vegas uses more water per capita than most communities in America 219 gallons of water per person every day and charges less for it than many communities.
April, Lake Mead's water level measured just 48 feet above the system's topmost intake straw.
