This has come through a partnership with Southern Nevada Water Authority.

MGM Resorts is incentivizing its employees in South Nevada with regards to residential water conservation. 

This has come about with a $500,000 grant to the Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA) Water Efficiency Improvement Fund. 

Employees of MGM Resorts will earn additional rebates when they utilize SNWA water savings programs that target residential water conservation. 

This program will educate employees on SNWA incentives for the Water Smart Landscapes Rebate, the Smart Irrigation Controller Rebate and the Smart Leak Detector Rebate. Employees who request them will get a water conservation retrofit kit that reduces indoor water use. 

On World Water Day, a video training course assigned to all South Nevada employees of MGM Resorts will outline the severity of the area’s water crisis. 

MGM Resorts CEO and President Bill Hornbuckle said: "In light of my pledge to the CEO Water Mandate and commitments to water stewardship in the community, I'm proud to announce a half-million-dollar grant that will educate and empower our employees to make a meaningful impact on water conservation.

"We're committed to understanding and addressing local water challenges, and this initiative reflects our dedication to community involvement and water sustainability." 

SNWA General Manager John Entsminger added: "MGM Resorts continues to demonstrate its commitment to water efficiency within its resort operations, saving billions of gallons over the past decade. 

"As the largest employer in Southern Nevada, MGM Resorts is taking meaningful action through this grant to encourage more of its employees to participate in effective water conservation programs that enhance the long-term sustainability of our community."
