The Nevada Flood Awareness Committee formed in late 2013 to raise awareness among Nevadans that serious flooding occurs regularly in our state, and that there are steps residents can take to mitigate the risk. The objectives of the committee are to effectively disseminate flood, flood preparedness and flood insurance information to Nevadans through annual activities in northern and rural Nevada and NevadaFloods.org.
Information about flooding in Southern Nevada can be found from The Clark County Regional Flood Control District that does extensive monitoring, alerting and education about the unique flooding challenges in Las Vegas and surrounding areas. In addition, information for flooding in the Truckee Meadows region can be found from the Truckee River Flood Project.
Nevada Flood Awareness Week, a Nevada Flood Awareness Committee initiative, has been organized annually since November, 2014. Led by the Nevada Division of Water Resources, this inter-agency collaborative effort enhances the committee's year-round outreach efforts through a combination of various advertising media and in-person events.
The Nevada Flood Awareness committee is comprised of volunteers from a number of governmental agencies that deal with flooding. The committee does not benefit in any way from the sale of flood insurance products, preparedness kits, or any other items discussed on the NevadaFloods.org website.
NevadaFloods.org is a cooperative effort between these local, state, and federal agencies:
