The Grand Hyatt Atlanta teamed up with Southern Polytechnic University and a local plumbing company to create a rain harvest system that helps reduce the hotel's reliance and spending on city water. The system is capable of gathering and storing 30,000 gallons of water, which is used in the Grand Hyatt's cooling tower. The hotel is also working on a plan to harvest water from ice machine and condensate drains.
