HENDERSON, Nev. (KLAS) – A water intake pipe at Lake Mead will soon be exposed, causing the Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA) to ensure Henderson customers and an industrial complex can still receive water.

The 8 News Now I-Team has learned the pipe which supplies water to Basic Management Inc. gathers water at 1050 feet. Lake Mead is currently at 1052 feet, a record low.

Basic Management Inc., through the Basic Water Company, supplies 10% of the City of Henderson’s drinking water, according to city representative Kathleen Richards. About 90% of the city’s water already comes from SNWA, Richards told the I-Team, and Henderson can increase the water it receives from SNWA. No disruption to residential customers is expected.

According to the Nevada Division of Environmental Protection, several chemical companies are at the site, including Basic Remediation Company, Titanium Metals Corporation Nevada Environmental Response Trust, Pioneer Americas, LLC d/b/a/Olin Chlor Alkali Products and Endeavour.

The City of Henderson, the SNWA, and the Las Vegas Valley Water District are currently working together to address the issue, according to Bronson Mack, a spokesperson for SNWA. Mack said water would continue to be delivered to the industrial complex through an interlocal agreement.

The I-Team also reached out to Basic Management Inc. and is waiting for a response.
