Abstract:

Even large gains in installation water efficiency will not safeguard supplies for continued use without planning for sustainable water resources regionally. Climate change will exacerbate scarcity in arid regions and affect availability in historically wet regions. Historic water rights are limiting factors for some installations. A holistic approach is needed for achieving energy and water sustainability. The Army should take a proactive approach for installations that will experience the greatest climate driven impacts.
