Summerlin continues to be a leader in desert water conservation. Environmentalists can feel at ease when choosing to live in Summerlin. The community is using increasingly more native desert plants to replace turf. This is saving millions of gallons of water every year! Many of the landscapes will eventually require absolutely no irrigation at all.
A History of Responsibility
This progress should come as no surprise after the Howard Hughes Corporation has shown a record for responsible land development. They have been utilizing water-efficient desert landscaping since the 1990’s. The corporation also partnered with Southern Nevada Water Authority in 2003 to make Summerlin the first community to enforce strict water usage policies.
Las Vegas as a whole has been influenced by the Howard Hughes Corporation’s example. Water usage has decreased by approximately 38% since 2003. Recycled water has become the standard and billions of gallons are put through the process each year to be used again.
