Abstract: Water conservation is not only good practice, but has become a political necessity and a mandate. Military installations are required to take steps to identify and implement appropriate technology/techniques to effect water conservation. The dynamics of water use on military installations are different than in civilian communities. Studies of the effectiveness of conservation measures in civilian communities may not directly apply to the military. Assessment of the actual impact of conservation measures on military installations is necessary to provide data for use in estimating payback periods for compliance with Executive Order 12902 and the Energy Policy Act, and to establish an effective water conservation program. Use of water saving fixtures, alternative landscaping scenarios, leak detection, demand side management, the reuse of water, and other methodologies provide opportunities for finding additional water supplies from within existing resources. These practices and technologies are associated with reduction in energy consumption and can also provide additional resource savings. This report provides a menu of alternatives for installations to choose from to respond to water conservation mandates.
