Water Conservation Landscape Planning – Getting Smarter about Water Use

Dry stream bed landscape featuring a combination of rock mulch, cobbles, and boulders for low maintenance and visual appeal.

The purpose of water conservation studies is to formulate fundamental landscape strategies specific to a particular site by recommending improvements and practices that will change how water is being used at that location. When implemented, these strategies ultimately can improve operational efficiency of the facilities at the site.

Working in partnership with Naval Facilities Engineering Command Southwest (NAVFAC SW) Desert Integrated Product Team Asset Management Branch, BergerABAM prepared water conservation landscape planning studies for six Navy Operational Support Centers (NOSC) in three southwest states, including California, Arizona, and Nevada. The water conservation plans provide the background, analysis, and framework for future final design and the preparation of construction plans, specifications, and cost estimates for the NOSC facilities.
