MGM Resorts International is participating in a water conservation project at the Bellagio Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

MGM has partnered with automated water management firm, Apana, and has identified areas to increase water efficiency including hot water loops, cooling towers, pools and the iconic fountain.

Apana has helped companies achieve water reductions as high as 25 per cent at more than 500 sites globally.

WaterStart, which helped bring Apana to Nevada with funding, has connected the technology company with MGM and the Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA).

This initial project involves connecting Apana’s IoT technology to the casino’s water network in order to provide real-time, actionable insight about leaks and irregular use to hotel engineering staff through the companies analytics software.

Apana’s sensors and water meters will be in place during the 36-month pilot to help MGM’s facilities management team at the Bellagio gain understanding into operating efficiencies.

MGM Resorts senior vice president and chief sustainability officer Cindy Ortega said data from the project will provide the company with insight on how to use water in much smarter and more innovative ways.

SNWA general manager, John Entsminger, said the resort sector is among the most water efficient industries in Southern Nevada – consuming only three per cent of the local water supply while employing 22 per cent of the local workforce.

“But are still asking all sectors of our community to do more to conserve water,” he said.

“Resort properties have large, complex water systems and insights gained from this pilot will help us to identify ways to further improve water efficiency and reduce demands.”
