You may have never heard of Mesquite, Nevada, but it’s one of the fastest growing areas in the entire country. 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, in the picturesque Virgin River Valley, Mesquite is becoming a major resort destination. One of its key advantages, noticed early on by developers, is its border location, just across the state line from both Arizona and Utah. And yet it’s right on Interstate 15, an easy drive to Las Vegas and Lake Meade in Nevada, as well as to magnificent Zion National Park in Utah.

With a full range of casinos, resorts, hotels, spas, golf courses, and other attractions, the city has managed to combine a small-town atmosphere with big-city attractions. Though still small, Mesquite has nearly doubled in population in the past 10 years, and chose National Automation Services (NASV.PK) to help address some of the challenges common with such explosive growth.

The Virgin Valley Water District serves the water processing needs of Mesquite and the nearby community of Bunkerville. NAS was called upon to help them comply with strict government water quality regulations by implementing an ambitious plan connecting 5 individual arsenic removal plant sites using advanced telemetry. NAS developed a high quality SCADA system for computerized and centralized process monitoring and control, with an easy to use graphical user interface, providing a cost effective and dependable solution. The result has been a highly maintainable operation, with reduced downtime and manpower requirements, saving the district both time and money, and ensuring the growing community the safest water supply.

Having served many of the biggest and most demanding companies in the country, NAS is even better able to offer its large client base of local municipalities the best technology and expertise available when it comes to water and waste water processing. The success of the Mesquite project is typical of the NAS experience, and explains the company’s positive and spreading reputation.
