Wynn Resorts is taking steps to monitor and reduce our water usage. Our programs include investing in smart technologies, monitoring water use on a functional basis, aligning best practices among our resorts, and investing in equipment for water use intensity. At all our resorts, we take steps to utilize technology that uses water more efficiently. We collect soil moisture measurements daily with a digital moisture meter, which feeds into a smart meteorological system that disperses water based on precipitation, temperature, and other specific weather conditions. Evaporation and runoff are also minimized through our precise drip irrigation systems.

The availability of water as a resource varies among the regions of our resort operations. We assess water risk using the World Resource Institute Water Stress Map. In regions where an increased level of risk is identified, we prioritize specialized measures to responsibly allocate our water use by investing in water-smart facility machinery, integrating weather monitoring, expanding water recycling opportunities, and reducing external water intake. More information on our programs is available in Life Returns to the Mystic Shoreline, p. 49 and Cultivating a Green Resort, p. 54.

SV-HL-160a.2 Description of Environmental Management Policies and Practices to Preserve Ecosystem Services

Our company takes pride in building welcoming, vibrant, and healthy environments for our guests and employees. We maintain our Five-Star resorts by applying attention to detail in all we do, including managing the environmental elements of our operations. Whether it’s integrating clean and renewable energy resources, creating drought-tolerant landscapes, reducing single-use plastics, increasing waste diversion rates, or developing Zero Carbon, Zero Waste event services, our core principle of “caring about everyone and everything” is always at the forefront of our business decisions.

Encore Boston Harbor is located in the watershed area along the banks of the Mystic River. The resort was built and is managed with environmental health as a top priority. The land and riverbed were fully remediated, removing harmful chemical toxins that dampened biological life. When building the coastal edge to the resort, we built a living shoreline of plants and organic material that would reestablish a habitat for river wildlife. These successful programs have brought more herring to the Mystic River than have been seen in decades.

At Encore Boston Harbor we continue to preserve the ecosystem that was rebuilt along the river. Our employees volunteer with the Mystic River Watershed Association’s water chestnut and shoreline cleanup events. These events support and rejuvenate healthy levels of oxygen for aquatic life in the Mystic River, as well as bring life back to the river’s trails and shorelines. Our outdoor landscaping is meticulously managed to avoid excess water runoff, ensuring that excess nutrients do not contribute to algae blooms in the Mystic River.

For more information on our ongoing initiatives at Encore Boston Harbor to promote coastal ecosystem resiliency along the Mystic River, see our story on page 49.
