The Clark County Water Reclamation District was created in 1954. It services the unincorporated portions of Clark County within the Las Vegas Valley, as well as the communities of Blue Diamond, Indian Springs, Laughlin, Overton and Searchlight. The District collects and treats nearly 100 million gallons of wastewater each day utilizing more than 2,000 miles of pipeline and seven treatment facilities.
In 2009, the Clark County Water Reclamation District started a project to extend the wastewater collection system from Overton into Logandale. The first phase of the project included new sewer line in Moapa Valley Boulevard, from Lewis to the intersection of Lyman. The first phase was completed in the Spring of 2011. The second phase, which included a portion of the line running to the Moapa Valley High School was completed in 2012.
Now that the new collection ssytem is in, the District will focus on rehabilitating the existing collection system. The first phase of rehabilitation work will consist of rehabilitating 41 manholes and 4 stretches of pipeline using trenchless technology. Future phases will include the continued rehabilitation and replacement of sewer collection lines.
