What is Nevada Water?
Nevada Water is focusing on building a trusted network that can address urban-rural water challenges across the state.
We are in Phase 1, which is a 12-month network-building effort, funded by the National Science Foundation, that will include partners that represent the full range of water users, purveyors, managers, decision-makers, educators and researchers. Our guiding principle is Science With Society, which emphasizes inclusion, communication, connections and collaboration. Importantly, Nevada Water will not be developing policies or changing water law. Rather, it is intended as a learning network where we co-identify diverse challenges, fill knowledge gaps, understand the social and hydrologic dimensions of water issues, and co-develop strategies for addressing seemingly intractable water issues.
