Abstract: The Army’s Net Zero Water (NZW) program for Army installations addresses installation vulnerability to issues of water supply and demand that could jeopardize water security, i.e., the ability of sustainable supply to meet projected demand. Providing the required amount of clean fresh water where needed is becoming increasingly difficult. Understanding regional supply and demand is integral to develop strategies for achieving installation water sustainability. This work evaluated NZW Army installations for vulnerability to water and supply issues to develop strategies to cope with water scarcity and to ultimately support attainment of mission sustainability. This includes the need to understand regional hydrologic systems, to project future water demand, and to identify and document strategies (new sources, conservation, and reuse) to reduce installation demand for fresh water. This project completed installation water sustainability assessments for the last four of eight NZW installations: Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD; Fort Buchanan, PR; Camp Rilea, OR; and Tobyhanna Army Depot, PA (the first four were completed in 2011). This project also examined candidate metrics for evaluating water use efficiency from the Army Campaign Plan. This evaluation explored available data sources and existing centralized data management systems that could be used to facilitate reporting and evaluation.
