Nevada Water Planning Program

Many of the publications produced by the Water Planning Section and its predecessor, the Division of Water Planning, are available as "PDF" publications or as webpages.Included on this page is the State Drought Plan, the State Water Plan, the Water for Nevada Series, and the Water Words Dictionary.
Besides publications, there are several other resources directly and indirectly related to water planning that may be of interest. This includes basin summaries and ground water usage (pumping) reports.
NRS §540.141 requires that conservation plans be posted on the Division of Water Resources website, and this is where they are housed. They are organized by county. Older plans may not be available on the web. Please contact the water planning engineer if you have questions regarding a specific plan.
