County Planning Two Meetings on Sloan Channel Pipeline

Clark County is outlining to the public its plan to hopefully eliminate an insect and smell problem created by wastewater in the Sloan Channel.

The problems began in 2011 when the City of North Las Vegas opened its water reclamation plant and started releasing the treated wastewater into the Sloan Channel. However, the county said the city did not get permission from county officials to start the dumping.

That started a legal fight between the city and the county, which ended with an agreement to build a pipeline to carry the water to the Las Vegas Wash.

County Commissioner Tom Collins will host a public meeting about the pipeline from 4 to 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Cora Coleman Senior Center, 2100 Bonnie Lane.

County Commissioner Chris Giunchigliani will host a public meeting from 4 to 6 p.m. Wednesday, August 14 at the Hollywood Community Center, 1650 South Hollywood Boulevard.

A presentation about the project will start at 4:30 p.m. at both meetings.

Construction of the pipeline is expected to start early next year and will take about a year to complete. During construction, lane closures will be expected along roads that cross the channel or run adjacent to it from Judson Avenue to Sahara Avenue.
