Description:

In March 2000, the Army's Senior Environmental Leadership Conference directed all installations to develop a sustainability program to ensure the ability of future generations to train and use the land in the same manner we use it today. Fort Hood held its sustainability conference in June 2002, inviting state and federal regulators, on and off post stakeholders, local community leaders, and other environmental professionals to help map out Fort Hood's 25 year goals. Five long-term goals were developed, teams were formed and began to refine the goals and develop objectives and targets to meet those goals, and to finalize preformance indicators to allow for tracking and verifying of the progress.

P2 Application:

A tanker purge facility was designed to save water while keeping petroleum, oil and water (POL) products out of the environment. Fort Hood also installed 7 waterless urinals to conserve water and has made it a mandatory item for consideration in all new designs.These are easier and less expensive to install than normal urinals.

Details of Reductions

  • 2,320,000.0 - Gallons of   Water
    Comments: The waterless urinals have saved $3900 and the purge facility has saved 1254 man hours. Man Hours on a military base are important not in dollars, but in training hours. Every hour a soldier is not training, the less able he is to perform his primary mission as a war fighter.
