Project Merit: Water


Marstel-Day LLC (Fredericksburg, Va.) for developing a standardized yet tailored approach for an integrated and sustainable water management plan for military installations with inadequate water availability, supply, and infrastructure. The company had previously identified the top five priority Air Force installations requiring plans for sustainable water resources. In 2015 it created the first Water Resource Management and Sustainability Plan for Mountain Home Air Force Base, a DOD participant in the White House’s Council on Environmental Quality Climate Preparedness and Resilience Planning Pilot Studies. The plan includes analysis of nine water challenges with a combination of 20 recommended actionable solutions to ensure water availability and sustainability to meet mission requirements. Marstel-Day is working on Water Resources Management and Sustainability Plans for four additional water restricted military installations.
