DESCRIPTION: The PMAC project demonstrates an exemplary application of innovative rainwater harvesting, stormwater management systems, Best Management Practices (BMP’s), and the use of a photovoltaic solar field system, to provide the yearly irrigation and electrical needs of the PMAC building and site. This project provides a socioeconomic benefit to the community through extension of public utility infrastructure, public education and outreach, and the preservation of our military history and artifacts. The successful delivery of this unique project allows PMML to continue their support of public education through the preservation of military artifacts and the telling of our rich military history.
