Brn In Vegas: Wash Walk

A walk from end to end of the Las Vegas Wash, culminating at Lake Mead. The wash serves as a natural and augmented river channel for various forms of water, including urban runoff and stormwater. This channel is largely invisible, overlooked and even unknown to many residents, not to mention visitors. Historically, any channeled water eventually deposited directly into Lake Mead. It now passes through a water treatment plant, built two decades ago, en route to the manmade lake—a novel reclamation effort that plays a small role in managing dwindling water resources.
