The state Game and Fish Commission has signed off on a deal to sell water to the city of Las Vegas to help get it through the current drought.
The commission approved the sale last week, City Manager Timothy Dodge said, adding that the city would get about 125 acre feet of water and would pay no more that $25,000 for it.
The money would come from the city’s water purchase fund, essentially money set aside from water customer revenues. Mayor Alfonso Ortiz stressed that the agreement only covers water for this year.
