Irvine’s Hyatt House: A WaterStar is Born

Irvine Ranch Water District officials congratulate Hyatt House Irvine on becoming a Certified WaterStar Business. From left are Mary Aileen Matheis, IRWD board director; Brett Ambrose, Hyatt House general manager; Allan Pasqual, IRWD senior water efficiency specialist; and Gabe Vargas, IRWD recycled water project specialist.

The newly constructed Hyatt House Irvine is scheduled to open in January— and it’s already a WaterStar. The seven-story building, at 2320 Main Street near John Wayne Airport, is the first California hotel to be dual-plumbed so guest toilets flush with recycled water. Its 149 extended-stay suites are equipped with high-efficiency water fixtures. Landscape is irrigated with recycled water.

On Nov. 9, Shimano American Corporation also earned WaterStar Certification for installing high-efficiency indoor water fixtures and using recycled water to irrigate the grounds of its two-building facility in Irvine.
