The pump station is pretty run down, you could go take a look around the place, see if you find anything strange going on. What do you say?”— Morgan Blake
This location is of paramount importance to the NCR, as it is responsible for filtering the water being pumped along the giant water pipe from Lake Las Vegas, and then back into the sharecropper farms.
There are two rooms inside the East Pump Station itself: one is an office room where the Courier can find varied junk and a damaged terminal that can be used as one way to initiate the quest Hard Luck Blues. The terminal requires a Science skill of at least 50 to repair the network connection. The second room is through the unlocked door and is a reactor room, and it contains no interesting items.
West of the Pump Station connected by a pipe is the East Cistern, accessible via a door on the western side of the building. Inside is a single room containing some junk items, supplies, a couple Nuka-Cola, and a copy of Fixin' Things (on the desk against the north wall, next to a broken computer terminal).
- Hard Luck Blues: Fixing the terminal will start this quest, regardless of whether or not the Courier has spoken to Morgan Blake.
The east pump station appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
Behind the scenesEdit
Inside on a wall, is a poster advertising the Sierra Madre casino; the location where the add-on Dead Money takes place. It also has "DEAD" written on a cubicle wall opposite it. A poster in the opposite corner for Dean Domino and two post cards on the tack board next to the computer are also references to the Dead Money add-on.

- xbox360 When the Courier tries to look at the computer, the image will just be blurry and then when you exit out, all of the Courier scoped weapons (when you zoom in) it will just show a computer screen. This can easily be fixed by resetting the console.[verified]
