P. 12 "Energy and Water Management Strategies and Tools"
Water Consumption Intensity
beginning in FY 2008, reduce water consumption intensity, relative to the baseline of the agency's water consumption in fiscal year 2007, through life-cycle cost-effective measures by 2 percent annually through the end of FY 2015 of 16 percent by the end of FY 2015.

P. 12 "Energy and Water Management Strategies and Tools"
P. 14 "retention of Funds" - DOE will provide further guidance.
