Water is essential to any hotel or resort. From cleaning and laundry to drinking and tending the grounds, the hospitality industry uses a significant amount of water. Hotels account for 15% of all commercial water usage in the United States. Of that, 30% goes toward restroom and domestic use, laundry and landscaping account for 16%, 14% goes toward kitchen use and 12% is for heating and cooling.
Like many other sectors, the hospitality industry has can reduce water usage and save money along the way. Many water applications in hotels and resorts create greywater waste that, while not suitable to drink, can be treated and recycled.
