Utility Services

Whether you’re moving into a brand-new home or a short-term rental, chances are you’ll have to establish utility service. While it may seem like a hassle to turn on service for a short-term location, all services are easily transferred once you find permanent housing.

Most local utility service providers allow online bill pay and specialized payment plans. Before you begin hook-up, make sure you have the following information on hand:

  • Contact information from previous utility companies (including phone number, address, account number and where applicable, letter of deposit/credit)
  • Details of your place of employment (address, phone, supervisor or human resources contact name)
  • Driver’s license and Social Security card
  • Your new address and phone number
  • Date you need service to begin

The Las Vegas Valley Water District (LVVWD) has been supplying Southern Nevada with water since 1954. The company currently serves more than 1 million customers. The district issues regular watering schedules for different areas of the valley. Non-complying residents are subject to fines. Certain types of private water features (including swimming pools and spas) are permitted.

water restrictions:

According to the LVVWD, during a “drought watch,” residential fountains and water features with a surface area of 200 square feet or less are allowed. During a “drought alert,” fountains and water features with a surface area of 25 square feet or less are allowed. Fountains are permitted to maintain a re-circulating water pool to sustain pumps, pond liners, surface coatings and ancillary equipment, though under drought conditions, the features may run only between the hours of 1:00 – 4:00 a.m., or whenever freezing conditions require system preservation.


  • Public and private swimming pools and recreational water parks
  • Fountains and water features supplied by privately-owned water rights or by water rights obtained by means of a state-issued permit

The Water District is the operating agency for the Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA), a regional organization that works to secure water resources for the valley. SNWA also provides conservation programs for customers of member agencies.
