Abstract : The DoD has numerous facilities that use inefficient irrigation practices (timer based and manual watering systems) that are no longer sustainable given the limited water supplies in many U.S. locations and future water demand. Executive Order (EO) 13693 requires the Federal government to reduce potable water usage 36% by 2025. The smart water conservation system may provide DoD a pathway to preserve green landscape assets while simultaneously reducing potable water demand for landscape irrigation, hence complying with the EO. In addition, to move forward with greater energy independence, the DoD seeks ways to reduce energy use as required by the Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA). Reducing potable water demand for landscape irrigation correlates to lower energy costs necessary to treat and convey water to DoD facilities.
