LAS VEGAS (AP) - Former longtime Southern Nevada Water Authority boss Patricia Mulroy is being named a senior fellow at UNLV’s Brookings Mountain West.

Mulroy will also serve as a senior fellow in the Brookings Institution’s Metropolitan Policy Program in Washington, D.C., and work on environmental and water issues through a faculty appointment with Desert Research Institute.

Mulroy served as general manager of the water authority from 1993 until her retirement in February. During her tenure, she faced the challenges of balancing the needs of a rapidly growing region with the reality of dwindling water supplies.

In her new role, Mulroy will build upon her experience to promote discussion on new ways to address environmental challenges affecting the arid Southwest.
