Water is a precious resource, especially in the Las Vegas desert. From advanced plumbing design to continued investment in low-flow technologies, developing conscientious operating practices on an ongoing basis is a priority at CityCenter. The entire development team has incorporated water conservation programs throughout the entire resort.
- Reclaimed water from Monte Carlo’s cooling tower was used to control dust during CityCenter construction, saving 2.4 million gallons of potable water and the energy required to process and pump it.
- Superior showerheads, faucets and toilets were selected by designers for their aesthetic appeal and functionality. Without compromising performance, these low-flow fixtures deliver water savings of more than 30 percent compared to standard bathroom fixtures.
- Native and drought-tolerant plant species were utilized in CityCenter landscaping for their heat and low-water tolerance.
- Moisture-control sensors and other technologies ensure that landscaping is irrigated only as much as needed. As a result, exterior vegetation uses 60 percent less water than traditional landscapes.
CityCenter saves nearly 50 million gallons of water each year, which is equivalent to the amount of water used by 380 Las Vegas homes annually.
