Street Sweeping Schedule: What is the street sweeping schedule?
- ... (more)
- Currently, there is no set street sweeper schedule.
This is due to the limited resources of equipment and manpower we currently
have. Each COH street sweeper, however, is required to cover their entire
designated area once a month. Due to unforeseen circumstances, they might be
dispatched to clean up after vehicle accidents, or incidences that also require
immediate clean-up, such as oil spills, debris in the roadway, broken glass,
etc. that would pull them away from their sweeping routine. Maintenance factors
on the sweepers also limit the ability to provide a set sweeping schedule. It
is possible, however, to request specific street clean-up for our residents
when needed by calling the Public Works Support Services Division's direct
number at (702) 267-3259.

- Before you drain your pool, consult with your pool professional and check your pool chemistry. It may be time to drain your pool if:
Total dissolved solids (TDS) exceed 1,500 parts per million (ppm)
Calcium hardness exceeds 350 ppm (or about 20 grains)
Some pool companies offer mobile filtration systems which remove dissolved solids from your pool water without the need to drain it, reducing water consumption and possible damage to plaster.
Pool and spa water must be drained into the sanitary sewer system, usually accessible through a clean-out port located in your front yard or elsewhere on your property. For help locating your sanitary sewer port, review these tips from SNWA.com.
Draining pool or spa water into the street is considered water waste.
Draining pool or spa water into a manhole is considered illegal dumping, is prohibited and can lead to a fine.
Do not drain a pool into a septic tank, which can quickly overfill. Homeowners on septic systems should contact the City of Henderson prior to draining their pool or spa to avoid receiving a water waste notice.
If you need additional assistance with locating your sewer port, you may contact the Building Plans Record Dept at (702) 267-3700, complete the form below with your name, phone number, address, and email address or call the Department of Utility Services Customer Care Center at 702-267-5900.

- Do you have a water softener?
Many pressure problems are associated with malfunctioning or improperly maintained water softeners. An easy test to determine if your water softener is causing a pressure problem is to place the softener in by-pass mode (which allows un-softened water and full pressure beyond the softener). The by-pass valve (Click here to view by-pass valve in a new window) is usually installed where the water enters and leaves the softener. If placing the softener in by-pass corrects your pressure problem, it is recommended that your softener be serviced.
- Do you have a pressure reducing valve? Click here to view pressure reducing valve in a new window
A pressure reducing valve is a common cause for pressure related problems. A pressure reducing valve is typically located in the garage where water enters a home from the street. In some instances, pressure reducing valves have been located below grade in resident’s yards. The primary function of a pressure reducing valve is to reduce the water pressure entering the home from the City’s water supply. These valves can be adjusted by a qualified individual, typically a plumber. The majority of homes located in the Anthem area had pressure reducing valves installed by the home builder during construction. Replacement valves can be purchased at your local home improvement store and are typically priced around $100.
Is there a humming or whistling noise coming from the PRV while water is flowing through it?
If so, your PRV is most likely causing your pressure related problem, recommend servicing the valve or call a plumber.
Is your in-home pressure higher than in the past?
If so, your pressure reducing valve is most likely causing your pressure related problem, recommend servicing the valve or call a plumber.
Does the pressure start higher and becomes lower?
If so, your pressure reducing valve is most likely causing your pressure related problem, recommend servicing the valve or call a plumber.
- Have you recently performed or had plumbing work performed on your home?
Another common source of pressure related issues are caused by partially open or closed valves. Valve utilized while performing plumbing work should be checked to ensure they are in the full open position. Valve with a hand wheel (Click here to view hand wheel valve in a new window) are generally a gate valve and have been known to break in the closed position. If the hand wheel continue to spin freely in either direction with no sign of resistance, the valve is most likely broken. Recommend replacement or call a plumber.
- Is the pressure problem associated with your hot water system?
Your pressure problem is most likely associated with your hot water heater or a hot water recirculation system. Recommend service or call a plumber.

- Customers are responsible for all water that passes through the water meter at their property, regardless of whether the water was used intentionally or put to beneficial use. Customers may be eligible to apply for the Leak Adjustment Program after a major leak occurrence if all program qualifications are met.
Adjustments consist of splitting the cost of excess consumption 50/50 between the customer and the City during a major leak.
Normal Consumption: 9,000 Gallons
Consumption including leak occurrence: 460,000 Gallons
Total Overage of Consumption: 460,000-9,000 = 451,000 Gallons
Adjustment Consumption: 451,000÷2 = 225,500 Gallons (50/50 between customer and the City)
Upon receipt and verification of required information, the leak adjustment will be applied to your account and appear on the subsequent bill.
Please note leak adjustments are limited to two (2) adjustments in five (5) years for leak occurrences that are greater than twice the normal consumption and must have active water service 13 months prior to the leak. The maximum adjustment is for three (3) billing cycles and the City will match to the highest tier the leak reached.
