Industry Notices


On July 19, 2022, the Las Vegas Valley Water District (LVVWD) Board of Directors approved an update to the LVVWD Service Rules that will limit the total combined water surface area of new swimming pools, spas, and water features on single-family residential parcels to a maximum of 600 square feet per property.  The updated LVVWD Service Rules go into effect September 1, 2022, so any permits for new pools/spas/water features on single-family residential parcels, in which the total combine water surface area will be greater than 600 sq. ft., must be issued by the Clark County Building Department (CCBD) by August 31, 2022.   If the permits for such pools/spas/water features are not issued by CCBD prior to September 1, 2022, then the applications will be disapproved.  Beginning September 1, 2022, all permits for pools/spas/water features on single-family residential parcels must be approved by LVVWD prior to permit issuance.

Please note that homeowners who want to obtain a building permit for a pool/spa/water feature in excess of 600 square feet, and whose property is served by a septic system, must secure an approved Tenant Improvement Application from the Southern Nevada Health District prior to the issuance of the building permit by CCBD.  Customers may request expedited review of this process; please see the SNHD’s website for additional information on cutoff dates and expedite fees for their Tenant Improvement Application Process:
