This thesis considers ways to conserve water at the Presidio of Monterey with reference to the general applicability of the study to other bases. Chapter One describes the current need for water conservation as potable water becomes more of a scarce resource. Chapter Two presents six methods of water conservation: reclamation and reuse, rain-water capture, flow reduction devices for inside application, metering of usage, planting of drought-resistant vegetation, and public education campaigns. Chapter Three evaluates each of these for the specific situation at the Presidio of Monterey. The most beneficial, determined by cost/benefit analysis, is the installation of two particular flow reduction devices--reducers for showers and faucets, and pressure reducing valves--and the institution of public education campaigns. Several suggestions are made for further study since rising costs may make some of the currently non-recommended options, such as reuse and rain-water capture, more viable.
