Abstract: Many Army installations within the United States are located within watersheds that are highly vulnerable to issues of water supply or demand stress. Army testing and training ranges are at particular risk to issues of water scarcity due to the fluctuations in population and the transient nature of residents. Additionally, testing and training areas offer the opportunity to expose soldiers to the importance of water efficiency and conservation because 500,000 soldiers pass through these facilities in any given year. Commercially available water conservation technologies can be implemented to realize water savings in Army testing and training ranges on both the supply and demand side. This work was undertaken to demonstrate and validate the retrofit of existing facilities with technologies that support reduced potable water consumption through conservation by performing an on-site demonstration/validation of the shower trailer plumbing fixtures, bulk water point, and composting toilet at training sites and water systems at the Camp Atterbury Joint Maneuver Training Center (CAJMTC), IN. Surveys were employed to determine general attitudes about water conservation and how these were affected by the conservation retrofits.
