Water restrictions have become a way of life in Las Vegas, whose mayor says his city needs a better supply, more space to store it and replacement of an aging pipeline system it’s been fixing one leak at a time.
The city of about 14,000 has endured some level of water restrictions for at least eight years since 2000. Last week, city councilors declared an emergency due to one of the driest winters in 60 years.
