Patricia Mulroy is Senior Fellow for Climate Adaptation and Environmental Policy at the Boyd School of Law and a Practitioner in Residence for the Saltman Center for Conflict Resolution.
On May 10, she wrote a guest column for the Las Vegas Sun titled “West watching California delta debate.”
In the article, she wrote, “What happens to the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta matters in Las Vegas, Phoenix, Salt Lake City and Denver. From the eastern slope of the Rockies to the edge of the Pacific Ocean, the western United States functions as a vast, interconnected plumbing system. Those who follow water closely in the West are increasingly nervous about what is going on in California.”
Between 1989 and early 2014, Patricia Mulroy served as General Manager of both the Las Vegas Valley Water District, a municipal purveyor serving more than 350,000 accounts, and the Southern Nevada Water Authority, the regional agency responsible for acquiring, treating and delivering water to two million Southern Nevadans and 40 million annual visitors.
