Our Commitment to Water Conservation
Since 2008, Caesars has been dedicated to using less water across our operations. We have reduced our water use per square foot by 26% since 2008. Some highlights of our water conservation program include:
- Installing low-flow shower heads, aerators and fixtures at many of our properties.
- Setting new design standards for public restrooms with dual-flush toilets, water-conserving urinals and low-flow sink aerators
- Instituting water on request in restaurants and at conventions
- Using drought-tolerant native vegetation whenever possible
- Implementing behind-the-scenes water efficient technologies for heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) to minimize water loss
- Participating in CDP water survey and earning a score of A- in 2016
- In the past year, we’ve saved enough water to fill up 272 Olympic-size swimming pools
As such a large organization, with extensive facilities including gardens and landscaped areas, the opportunities to optimize our water consumption are tremendous. We prioritize our efforts to gain early benefits, while ensuring that our guests are not inconvenienced as we work at each property. We hope our guests are encouraged that Caesars is doing our part to conserve water, especially in water-scarce areas such as Nevada.
-Rob Morris, Corporate Director for Enterprise Energy and Engineering
In 2015, Caesars started monitoring water use, quality and treatment electronically to get the most use out of each gallon of water. This new program is expected to reduce process water use by at least 10%. Through the first six months of the program, we are on track to achieve this savings.
