Abstract: The Mobile Information Collection Application: Water Equipment Tracker (MICA:WET) tool is an Android application (‘app’) that provides a comprehensive means of tracking water equipment and conservation projects at the building level across an installation. The application’s underlying database was built for compatibility with the BUILDER facility life cycle management and repair system officially adopted throughout the US Department of Defense (DoD). MICA-WET enables installation personnel to collect water-related facility data on an Android-based tablet during a facility assessment. The collected data are encrypted and uploaded via public Wi-Fi, to external servers, from which authorized users have immediate access. This report describes the MICA:WET app, and its use during field tests at five installations, Fort Hood, TX, Fort Campbell, KY, Fort Leonard Wood, MO, and two Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) laboratories. MICA:WET data collected from two of these installations are currently being used to propose water conservation projects. MICA:WET is also being developed to create estimates for installations that lack individual facility water meters, based on building water consumption from demographic and occupancy frequency estimates.
