Water Usage

Water Usage

In addition to conserving energy, Seven Springs is changing the way we use our most precious resource. Efforts to reduce water usage have saved millions of gallons of water.

Water Usage
  • - By adjusting washing machine cycles, the resort saved 311,784 gallons of water between March 2013 and August 2014.
  • - Changed more than 400 shower heads to low-flow models, reducing average flow from five gallons per minute to two and a half.
  • - Encourage guests to use towels and washcloths more than once and giving them the option of having their sheets replaced after their stay is complete.
  • - Developed a potable water system to recycle water by treating and returning it to drainage areas to recharge the sources.
  • - The installation of the shower heads, along with the linen service options and the closed-circuit snowmaking system, allowed Seven Springs to save 3.6 million gallons of water for the year 2008.
  • - In conjunction with the Pennsylvania Recreation and Park Society, constructed a rain garden to allow storm water to soak into the ground instead of flowing into storm drains and ultimately into streams. Runoff causes erosion, pollution and flooding.
  • - Reduced repetitive, unnecessary wash cycles, which saved 18 minutes and approximately 75 gallons per load.
