GCNV July Luncheon – Every Drop Counts – Water in the Desert

July 18, 2018 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm


Our Topic

Most of the rainwater that falls in the Las Vegas Valley travels through gutters, storm drains, channels, and washes and eventually drains, untreated, into the source of our drinking water – Lake Mead.  As a result, it is important to minimize the amount of pollutants that come into contact with rainwater during storm events.  It is also important to minimize the amount of pollution present in non-stormwater discharges that also have the potential to reach major water sources.  This presentation will describe the history of the Las Vegas Valley Stormwater Management Program, why it exists, and the major components of the program, with an emphasis on how stormwater management is designed to help protect water quality in the Las Vegas Wash and Lake Mead.

Our Speaker

John Tennert

John Tennert is Environmental Mitigation Manager for the Clark County Regional Flood Control District where he oversees environmental compliance activities associated with District activities.  John has worked in local government in the Las Vegas Valley for more than 15 years, focusing on environmental and regulatory policy.  He holds a Ph.D. in Public Administration and Policy from Virginia Tech, a Master of Arts in Political Science from the University of Texas at El Paso, and a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Washington State University.
