Water conservation programs

The Southern Nevada Water Authority offers a variety of water-saving programs to help residents and businesses save water.

Review these programs and contact us if you would like more information. Join the Water Conservation Coalition if you would like to help other businesses learn more about water savings.

Programs

There are a variety of water-saving programs to meet the needs of various businesses:

Linen Exchange program

Through the Linen Exchange program, participating hotels agree to only change linens and towels once every three days during a guest’s stay unless otherwise requested.

Mirror clings and promotional materials are provided, explaining the benefits to the guests for placement in the hotel rooms.

Free of charge, the Linen Exchange Program saves participating hotels and resorts water, time and money. Benefits of program participation include:

  • 50 gallons per room per day water savings
  • 30 percent less in laundry costs
  • $1 per occupied room per day reduction in operating costs
  • A visible example of the hotel industry's water conservation efforts

This program is co-sponsored by the Water Conservation Coalition.

Water Smart Home program

In partnership with the Southern Nevada Home Builders Association, the Water Authority developed the Water Smart Home program, requiring homes built through the program to include water-smart landscaping and water-efficient appliances.

A Water Smart Home may save as much as 75,000 gallons of water each year compared to homes built in the 1990s.

Water Upon Request program

Available at no charge to Southern Nevada restaurants, the Water Upon Request program provides water-saving menu stickers that indicate the restaurant's support of conservation by serving water only upon request. For every glass of water not served, as much as 1.5 to more than 3 gallons of water are saved.

To date, more than 200 restaurants have participated in the program, created in partnership by the Nevada Restaurant Association, Water Conservation Coalition, and Southern Nevada Water Authority.

To participate in this water-saving program or for more information, fill out the Water Upon Request form or call 702-258-3836. Re-order reminders are sent out to all participants twice yearly.
