Water Conservation and Management
The purpose of the Department of Defense (DoD) ILA Water Use Guidance is to provide a starting point for measuring industrial, landscaping, and agricultural (ILA) water usage. The guidance specifically defines ILA water, and provides instructions on baseline development and reporting by providing standard measurement techniques of water applications-particularly when metering equipment is unavailable. This guidance shall serve as a starter to accurately measure ILA water, however over the course of gaining a better understanding of ILA water applications through DoD, this guidance may be updated to reflect the a more accurate and efficient process towards better water management. This guidance is in accordance with Executive Order (EO) 13514 Federal Leadership in Environmental, Energy, and Economic Performance. EO 13514 included provisions to require Federal agencies to improve water use efficiency and management of ILA water.
