☷ Searchlight, Nevada - Help Keep Clark County Clean This Flood Season 22 June 2022

Searchlight, , state Nevada
| 10| 2
   With flash flood season upon us , officials are reminding the public that trash and debris left on streets , sidewalks and in desert areas can get washed into storm drains and flood control channels and wind up in Lake Mead , the source of the community’s drinking water . Flash floods occur most often in Southern Nevada from July through September during monsoon season .  
   Simple activities such as putting lids on trash bins or knowing where to report illegal dumping sites can go a long way toward keeping the Las Vegas Valley clean . A handout offering tips and various resources in the community called “
   Keep Clark County Clean
   ” is posted on the County’s Department of Environment and Sustainability’s
   website pages
    at
   www . ClarkCountyNV . gov
    .
   “We all need to do our part to keep our community clean and protect Lake Mead , ” said Clark County Commission Chairman Jim Gibson , whose Commission District G in the southeast valley includes Clark County Wetlands Park , which often gets particularly hard - hit during storms . “Some simple actions such as picking up after your pets and keeping your car maintained so oil doesn’t leak into our storm drains can have a big impact on the health and beauty of our community . ”
   “Litter and illegal dumping issues often get worse when it rains in our valley because debris gets washed into the local flood control network and ends up polluting low - lying areas , ” said Clark County Commissioner Justin Jones , vice - chair of the Regional Flood Control District . “With a population of more than two million people , debris left on streets or in desert areas can certainly add up and impact our quality of life . ”
   Clark County spends millions of dollars a year cleaning up streets , parks and flood control channels . When it rains , debris left in public areas can plug inlets and drains in curbs and sidewalks and add to neighborhood flooding issue and clean - up costs . Residents living in unincorporated County areas can report plugged inlets and storm drains to the Public Works Department at ( 702 ) 455 - 6000 or online through FixIt Clark County:  
   https://tinyurl . com/4s4p9pu6
    . Reports in other jurisdictions can be made to the Regional Flood Control District at
   www . regionalflood . org
    or ( 702 ) 685 - 0000 .
   In addition to the Clark County Regional Flood Control District , other partners in the Keep Clark County Clean effort include the Clark County Water Reclamation District , Republic Services , Southern Nevada Health District , Las Vegas Valley Water District , and Get Outdoors Nevada . Clark County regularly partners with Get Outdoors Nevada and other groups to host cleanups at locations throughout the Las Vegas Valley . A list of upcoming cleanups is posted on the organization’s website at
