Focus Las Vegas: In the Know About H20

Southern Nevada is situated in the desert, and water sustainability is at the forefront of conversations about our future. How secure is our water supply? Do we have enough for the future? What is our water quality (should I really be drinking this stuff?)? What are our priorities in water usage, and are conservation shorts making an impact? And what can you do to make a difference?
