Pittman Wash Stakeholder Group

The City of Henderson has established a stakeholder group to help keep neighbors adjacent to the Pittman Wash informed about the maintenance programs being performed by the City’s Parks and Recreation, Utilities, and Public Works Departments.

The Stakeholder Group meets monthly and is comprised of one representative from most communities adjacent to the Wash between Pebble Road and Arroyo Grande Boulevard. Participating representatives will share information from each meeting with their community.

Mosquito Control

The City of Henderson works closely with the Southern Nevada Health District to monitor mosquitos and treat as needed. Authorities have noticed an increase in West Nile Virus cases in parts of the Las Vegas Valley. When outdoors, wear long sleeves and use repellent and drain standing water. Get more tips at the Southern Nevada Health District website
