Super Bowl Sunday a Win for Water Efficiency, Says Waterless Co.

January 30, 2019 GMT

VISTA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 30, 2019--Atlanta officials expect more than 150,000 out-of-town guests for the Super Bowl this weekend (Feb 3, 2019) and more than one million people – residents and visitors – are expected to attend Super Bowl related-events.

The city is asking people not to drive to the Mercedes Stadium, this year’s site for the Super Bowl. Atlanta is known for its congested highways and the Super Bowl is likely to increase that congestion considerably.

However, one thing Atlanta officials will not be as concerned about this weekend is water. Most professional sports stadiums use hundreds of thousands of gallons of water annually consumed by fans, players, staff, and used for irrigation.

However, what makes Mercedes Stadium different and why water is less of a concern is the following:

Overall, the Atlanta stadium is expected to use 47 percent less water than a comparably-sized stadium. But water efficiency is not the only sustainable initiative at the stadium. Other features include the following:

“Edible landscaping refers to growing food-producing plants around the stadium,” says Klaus Reichardt, CEO and Founder of Waterless Co. “It’s one more example of how the Mercedes Stadium not only reduced water consumption and promotes sustainability but gives back to the local community.”
