Abstract: Executive Order 13834 (White House 2018) mandates the reduction of water consumption from potable and non-potable water distribution systems to increase readiness and security. Flushing of water distribution systems potentially wastes large quantities of water. This work developed and administered an installation survey to assess the prevalence of potable water flushing at Army installations, and used the information gathered from that survey to identify available technologies to recommend best management practices that reduce flushing and/or that reduce water loss due to flushing. Specific recommendations include changes to lessen the need to flush and practices that optimize necessary flushing.
