Flooding In Las Vegas Becoming A Thing Of The Past

Flooding In Las Vegas Becoming A Thing Of The Past

There was a time not too long ago when, every time it rained, even a little, the Charleston Boulevard underpass would flood.Local TV crews would rejoice because the 10 feet of water behind them was always an interesting visual backdrop.But that doesn’t happen anymore. Even as Las Vegas expects monsoonal moisture to rise up from the Pacific Ocean and grant us the occassional cloud burst.That, however, is just a slice of what 30 years and nearly $2 billion spent on flood control has done for the greater Las Vegas area.
