Water Provisioning

A measure of the landscape’s potential to provide water necessary for use, storage, or discharge during the course of normal operations for a facility. (Units: Percent Performance and Service Acres)

Engineering Units: The amount of depressional surface storage capacity available on a site in which water could be housed and used for business purposes. Note – thresholds for viability (for site management purposes) have been set in the ESII Tool and must be met for scores to be generated: minimum total volume of storage space = 10,000 gallons; predominant depth = greater than 2 feet; and the storage area must be considered natural.
