Water Efficiency Management Strategies for Airports

This report provides a guidebook and tools that airport operators can use to design and institute a water efficiency management program specific to their facility. This report enables airport operators to understand water uses and usage at airports to generate a baseline water use profile specific to their airport activities, and to define appropriate water use targets. It will also help to evaluate appropriate water efficiency measures including their direct and indirect costs and benefits and develop a water efficiency management action plan. Among the many topics this report addresses are applicable water management tools and practices used worldwide within and outside of the airport industry; methods for collection, management, and analysis of data relevant to airport water management; collaboration and communication with the public and stakeholders, including water providers; program implementation strategies, including motivation for decision makers; infrastructure operation and maintenance considerations; and drought planning considerations. The End Use Water Audit Tool, which can be used to estimate an airport’s baseline water footprint, and a Microsoft® Powerpoint presentation, which provides an overview of the guidebook and the toolbox, are provided on an accompanying CD-ROM (CRP-CD-181) and are also available on the TRB website.
