Water Resource Management
This section of the web site is dedicated to information and activities related to water/wastewater management in the Federal sector, specifically at Army installations. Requirements for water efficiency in the Federal sector are spelled out in EO 13423 , section 2c (.pdf, 110Kb).
The goal is beginning in FY 2008, to reduce water consumption intensity, relative to the baseline of the agency's water consumption in fiscal year 2007, through life-cycle cost-effectives measures by 2 percent annually through the end of fiscal year 2015 or 16 percent by the end of fiscal year 2015.
