The Nevada Legislature authorized the creation of the District in 1985 to develop a coordinated and comprehensive Master Plan to solve flooding problems, to regulate land use in flood hazard areas, to fund and coordinate the construction of flood control facilities and to develop and contribute to the funding of a maintenance program for Master Plan flood control facilities. The District also provides public education regarding flood dangers and monitors rainfall and flow data during storms, disseminating information to appropriate public works and safety crews. The service area for the District includes Clark County and the incorporated areas of Boulder City, Henderson, Las Vegas, Mesquite and North Las Vegas.
The Regional Flood Control District is a distinct local governmental agency. The District contracts with Clark County for various legal and administrative services provided by departments such as the Comptroller, District Attorney, General Services, Human Resources, Information Systems and Treasurer.
