Deployed, extended military members to receive discounted water/sewer rates: The Clark County Water Reclamation District, through a partnership with Nellis and  Creech Air Force  Bases Public Partnerships Office and the Legal Office will offer a reduced “Military Relief Rate” to members of the Armed Forces whose homes will be unoccupied due to military orders. Generally, this time period should be for more than one month. There is no outer time limit for the discount; it will apply for the duration of the orders. Since the discount is being offered through Clark County Water Reclamation District, this policy applies primarily to homes in unincorporated areas of Clark County only. Members who receive utility service/billing from the cities of Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, or Henderson are not eligible for the discounted rate. To secure the reduced rate, military members can obtain a copy of the form from the Legal Office, the Airman and Family Readiness Center, or the Clark County Water Reclamation District offices at 5857 E.

The security and policy review program, established by the Secretary of Defense, is designed to protect the U.S. Government, Department of Defense and individual DoD members.
