HVS Provides Insight on Impacts of the California Drought on the Hospitality Community

This article summarizes the impact of the California drought on the hospitality community, including a review of the recent Executive Order on water conservation and its impacts on water availability, rates, and hotel operating practices.

HVS Energy & Sustainability today announced the release of an article titled “What Does the California Drought Mean for the Hospitality Community?” that summarizes the recent Executive Order on water conservation and its impacts on water availability, rates, and hotel operating practices in California. It also offers practical guidance on steps that operators can take to reduce water consumption and associated costs.

Diane Vondrasek, Project Manager with HVS Energy & Sustainability, commented, “California is witnessing the worst drought in recorded history. This article explains the Executive Order, which impacts every citizen, agency, and business within the State of California – including lodging properties. It also discusses numerous ways in which hoteliers can be proactive in reducing water consumption without adversely impacting guest satisfaction.” She added, “Given that the drought is anticipated to continue, and California actions may serve as a template for other drought prone areas, we firmly believe that the issuance of this Executive Order presents the hospitality community with a momentous opportunity to embrace financially sound water conservation practices and demonstrate its leadership in a sustainable water future.

HVS Energy & Sustainability helps hotel owners and operators reduce operating expenses through diligent facility management and informed strategic investment into building equipment. We adapt our approach on an asset-by-asset basis and focus on providing financially-viable recommendations that can be immediately incorporated into both operational and capital plans.
