The Colorado River Commission of Nevada (CRC) is an executive agency of the State of Nevada responsible for acquiring and managing Nevada's share of water and hydropower resources from the Colorado River.
Situation in Nevada. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services, Division of Public and Behavioral Health (DPBH) are closely monitoring the outbreak of respiratory illness caused by the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19), first identified in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China.
COVID-19 is a respiratory illness, like the flu, which is spread person to person—there is no indication that transmission can occur via drinking water supplies.
The Colorado River Commission of Nevada does not anticipate any current scenario that would interrupt water availability to our community.
Information about water quality can be found at the Southern Nevada Water Authority webpage.
Information about COVID-19 prevention and treatment can be found at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s website.
