Purpose of Website
The Water Management Toolbox is a resource for Army Installation water managers and others interested in water management issues. The purpose of the Water Management Toolbox is to provide water managers with a comprehensive source of relevant information regarding water management issues and requirements. In addition, the website is also open to the public so that its content may be of use to others who are interested in water management issues. We hope the website will be a useful resource to all those concerned with water management and conservation. We've listed just a fraction of the available resources so please let us know if we've missed something important. We hope that users will make use of the Water Management Forum to share information and post queries.
Water issues are impacting Army installations and operations in many locations across the nation. Concerns including supply variability, increased cost of purchase or production, quality, habitat degradation, and salinity issues have prompted a new focus on sustainable water management.
Recent national policy that establishes water conservation targets includes codified national goals for DoD installations to design and implement water efficiency Best Management Practices (BMPs) and develop a water management plan. Additional requirements include increasing use of alternate water sources and mandates to manage stormwater sustainably.
Availability of a wide array of material in an easily-accessed and centralized location will save time for any Army and USACE staff engaged in water resource planning and execution. This toolbox is available to designers and planners of new facilities, installation staff interested in reducing water demand, contract utility staff updating water systems, and anyone else in need of information.
Who We Are
The Water Management Toolbox is maintained by the US Army Corps of Engineers Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (CERL). CERL is part of the Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC), which is the integrated Army Corps of Engineers' research and development (R&D) organization. CERL conducts research and development in infrastructure and environmental sustainability for installations. Research is directed toward increasing the Army's ability to more efficiently construct, operate, and maintain its installations and ensure environmental quality and safety at a reduced life-cycle cost.
