Fallout: New Vegas locations project
This location is of paramount importance to the NCR, because it is responsible for filtering the water being pumped along the giant water pipe from Lake Las Vegas, and then into the Sharecropper Farms.
There are two rooms inside. One is an office room where you can find junk and a damaged terminal that can be used 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.
The east pump station only appears in Fallout: New Vegas.
Behind the scenes
- Inside on a wall is a poster advertising the Sierra Madre casino, the location where the add-on Dead Money takes place. Take notice that this poster was here before the add-on in question was announced. It also has "DEAD" written on a cubicle wall opposite. 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.
