End Date: Jun 29, 2018
The approach is described in the following tasks and demonstrations will be conducted on the following installations: Fort Bliss, White Sands Missile Range, Fort Huachuca, and Fort Carson. Task 1: Identify watershed management and regulatory requirements. Task 2: Conduct an initial AGWA/DST computer training session to familiarize installation managers with the tools. Conduct a “User Needs Assessment” to determine how the tools can be tailored to best meet the needs of installation managers. Determine the best way to deliver the modeling technology in light of security, data sources, and user capabilities. Task 3: Characterize Demonstration Sites. Task 4: Incorporate look-up tables relating military activities to changes in vegetation and cover conditions and incorporate the functionality desired by base mangers. Task 5: Couple AGWA and the Facilitator DST. Task 6: Define and construct alternative management scenarios. Task 7: Conduct a second round of AGWA-Facilitator training, demonstrating new features. Task 8: Technology transfer including on-going communication with installation managers, interim meetings, and training workshops. In addition, actively review tool and model documentation with users to ensure it meets their needs.
