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

It is estimated that Kalahari will have a demand of 229,000 gallons per day on the average day with a max day demand 413,000 gallons.  After build-out of the project the system will still have 5.6 million gallons of excess capacity at the project flow rates. The company has an excellent water-recycling program already implemented in its other properties.  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%); waterpark (19%); meeting space (6%); public space (6%); and retail shops (3%).
