Making conservation easy - for businesses
Apr 19, 2021 Season 1 Episode 9
Southern Nevada Water Authority

Show Summary:
There are more than 5,000 acres of useless grass in Southern Nevada that only gets used when someone runs a lawn mower over it. And while residential property owners have stepped up and removed grass from their yards through the Water Smarts Landscapes rebate, the majority of remaining non-functional turf is on commercial and HOA properties, medians, and streetscapes. Patrick Watson, Conservation Programs Administrator with the Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA), discusses why and how businesses, HOAs and multi-family properties can increase their conservation efforts through the SNWA’s cash incentives and programs. City of Henderson Conservation and Customer Care Supervisor Tina Chen also provides details about added financial incentives for business properties in Henderson.
