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, is the week of November 10, 2014. It was funded in part with a grant from the US Army Corps of Engineers and was organized by:

Nevada Division of Water Resources, Floodplain Management Program
Nevada Division of Emergency Management
University of Nevada Cooperative Extension (UNCE)

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:
