Las Vegas makes efforts to combat waste2

The fountain at the Bellagio hotel, the canals at the Venetian and the water wall at the Aria are all iconic spots along the Las Vegas Strip, but they are surprisingly not wasting water in this Nevada desert city.

Water conservation efforts are nothing new in the desert. In fact, resorts, along with all of greater Las Vegas, have been at the forefront of sustainability efforts since the drought began 15 years ago. Businesses and residents have switched to low flow fixtures and appliances, and put in drought tolerant landscaping. But the biggest water savings comes from recycling.
