The MOUNTAIN STATES GROUND WATER EXPO is held annually in Laughlin, Nevada, and hosted by the Ground Water and Water Well Associations of Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico and Utah.

Mountain States Groundwater Expo – online registration is now closed. We will be accepting on-site registration at the show – see you in Laughlin!

2023 will mark the 25th Anniversary of the Buck Lively Auction, held exclusively at the Mountain States Groundwater Expo.  Over the past 25 years, proceeds from the auction have raised over a half a million dollars in scholarship funds, which equates to over $100,000 in scholarships to each of our 5 participating states.
