In an effort to continue its commitment to sustainably, Miraval is delighted to announce the addition of a state-of-the-art water reclamation facility. Designed to treat up to 50,000 gallons of waste water per day (approximately 30% more treatment capacity than existing system) into the highest Reclaimed Water Quality Standards (A+).The new system will allow for 99% of the treated water to be available for reuse or recharge; thereby reducing potable water demand and benefiting the groundwater aquifer.
“Since its inception, Miraval has remained committed to preserving the beauty of the natural environment that surrounds us,” said Michael G. Tompkins, Chief Executive Officer, Miraval Arizona Resort & Spa. “From the building of our LEED Silver certified Catalina Rooms in 2008, to our LEED Silver Certified and award-winning Villas in 2009, and now our new waste water treatment plant, Miraval has worked tirelessly to make sustainability initiatives a top priority.”
Built to help preserve the delicate ecosystem of the surrounding Sonoran desert, the new water treatment plant supports Miraval’s mantra of mindful living, releasing water back into the natural aquifer to ultimately reduce waste.
