Las Vegas, Nevada: the thirstiest city in the driest state, is now trying to leverage that reputation by turning itself into a hub for new and innovative water technology. Some are saying that it may even become the Silicon Valley of Water Conservation. Everything is watched, measured and checked. Water is recycled and returned to the source. Every drop is monitored acoustically to detect possible leaks within 6,500 miles of pipes. This inspiring film focuses on innovative solutions that could serve as models in other parts of the world.
