How much water will the water park use and where will that water come from?

  • June 13, 2016

The entirety of the Kalahari operation is predicted to use in the range of 180,000 to 260,000 gallons of water daily. The company has an excellent water-recycling program already implemented in its other properties. And, because of the property’s proximity to the City’s wastewater treatment plant, Kalahari has expressed an interest in purchasing reuse (non-drinkable) water for some uses. Guests in the hotel rooms will consume the most water, but Kalahari has a strong record of implementing many water and energy conservation measures. Details of the resort’s projected daily water usage in other locations include: hotel rooms (47%); restaurants (19%); water park (19%); meeting space (6%); public space (6%); and retail shops (3%). The City of Round Rock gets its water from a number of sources, including Lake Travis, Lake Georgetown, Stillhouse Hollow Lake and the Edwards Aquifer.
