Literature Review on The Water Crisis in Las Vegas
According to the peer-reviewed journal article “Future Changes in Water Supply and
Demand for Las Vegas Valley” (Joshi et al., 2020), the supply and demand of water impact

people residing in Las Vegas. Therefore, based on the article, regulating water usage in Las

knowledge, concern, and environmental value inclination were all notable forecasters of water
conservation. Despite this, "concern" is the main forecaster for water policy support in a desert
