Mission, Goals, and Objectives
NASA's stewardship of water resources includes management of drinking water, irrigation, storm water, waste water, wetlands, and other related natural resources issues. Our goal is not only to conserve the water itself, but to protect the natural resources which the water supports.
The NASA Headquarters Environmental Management System designates Water Management as a medium priority environmental aspect. The Environmental Management Program for this aspect includes an objective to reduce water usage across the Agency.
How Water Management Supports NASA’s Mission
NASA's Water Management community helps field sites manage water wisely, which enables NASA to conduct ground operations and continually improve the efficiency of those operations. NASA implements a three-prong approach to mitigating water risk to mission: Perform mission operations and maintenance considering water efficiency and cost, construct and renovate with the life-cycle in mind, and manage water wisely.
