City Seeks Input on Wastewater Options

Wastewater Discussion 4.4.2023

BOULDER CITY - Since 1965, Boulder City has processed wastewater by sending it through a bar screen and grit removal system to remove solid waste. It is then released into evaporation ponds or sold for dust control. This wastewater is called "effluent." Currently, between 1.2 million and 1.5 million gallons of effluent is released daily into the evaporation ponds. City Council and City staff are actively working with the Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA) on efforts to reuse wastewater in a more sustainable way and reduce water usage throughout the community. SNWA staff presented wastewater reuse/recycling options during the March 14, 2023 City Council Meeting. City Council requested SNWA complete feasibility studies* on Option 2 and Option 3, detailed here:   

*Feasibility studies can take several months to a year to complete.

City staff hosted a Wastewater Staff-led Town Hall Discussion led by Utilities Director Joe Stubitz on April 4, 2023 at the Smith Building. More than 60 residents had a chance to ask questions and learn more about the options. Here is a link to the Power Point Presentation from the discussion. If you have questions, email staff at

All residents are asked to Take the Boulder City Wastewater Survey here through September 2023. City staff intends to seek additional public input after the feasibility studies are complete, likely in late 2023 or in 2024.
