CSP Lecture: Patricia Mulroy

“Water Management in the 21st Century: Is there a new normal?”


The Antoinette and Vincent M. Dungan Lectureship on Energy and the Environment

Pat Mulroy oversees the operations of the Las Vegas Valley Water District, which serves more than 340,000 customers, and the Southern Nevada Water Authority, which is responsible for acquiring, treating and delivering water to local agencies that collectively serve 2 million residents and nearly 40 million annual visitors. Mulroy was a principal architect of the Authority, which has allowed Southern Nevada to not only weather the stresses of growth, but also one of the worst droughts to befall the Colorado River. As general manager of one of the country’s most progressive water agencies, Mulroy is exceptionally active in regional and national water issues. Her honors include National Jewish Medical and Research Center’s Humanitarian Award, the University and Community College System of Nevada Board of Regents’ Distinguished Nevadan Award, and the Education Hero Award from the Public Education Foundation.
