The fountain at the Bellagio hotel in Las Vegas. Seems like an ostentatious waste of water right? Well…maybe it’s one of the “most economically productive uses of water.”
A post from writer John Fleck’s blog explains:

12 millions gallons a year to keep it topped up + lots of people walking by =

Revenue from the 7 casino-resort hotels contiguous to the fountain: $3.6 billion

Very interesting…too soon to know the actual effects of legalized marijuana on water use but it will be great if they can innovate!


The United States needs around 731,920 million litres a day (161,000m gallons) to produce and burn the nearly 900m tonnes of coal it uses each year to generate just a third of the nation’s electricity.

In India, plans to produce 500 gigawatts of coal-fired electricity by 2040, will require at least 58bn cubic metres per year (pdf). And in China, about 15% of national water withdrawals are used for coal mining, processing, ash control, and for cooling of its coal-fired power plants.

Where will all this water come from?
Global energy consumption is forecast to increase nearly 50% by 2040, driven mostly by emerging economies such as China and India. Energy strategies based on fossil fuels will require much more water to be allocated to new power plants.

96 million…that’s how many shade balls sit on the surface of the Los Angeles reservoir in Sylmar. I recently visited the Los Angeles Aqueduct Filtration Plant. And it was great! After seeing the water cascading down the hill into the San Fernando Valley, it’s a great reminder that it’s not that simple. It takes a lot more work, money, time to make that water ready for us.
