Fort Irwin’s Water System is operated under a privatization contract with CH2MHILL. As the system ownership is not transferred to CH2MHILL, compliance responsibilities still reside with the United States Army.

Fort Irwin has recently completed the Year 2012 Water Quality Report for Fort Irwin. CH2MHill routinely monitors (on behalf of Fort Irwin) for constituents in the drinking water according to Federal and State laws. The full results of the monitoring for the period of January 1 through December 31, 2012 are available online at http://www.irwin.army.mil/community/Environment/. This website also contains previous year’s reports.
It is important to Fort Irwin that our customers be informed about water quality on Fort Irwin.

Muy importante: Este informe contiene informacion muy importante sobre su agua de beber. Traduzcalo `o hable con alguien que lo entienda bien.
The Year 2012 Water Quality Report meets all requirements for the Consumer Confidence Report for 2012. The Environmental Protection Agency and the State of California Title 22 requires that this report be prepared and posted by the community water system on an annual basis to keep the public informed.

Fort Irwin’s report contains information on the source of the water and any contaminants that may be present in the source water. For example, last year the Fort Irwin’s Domestic Use (DU) water exceeded the maximum contaminate limits for arsenic and fluoride. The Reverse Osmosis (RO) water provided at small taps and water fountains is safe to drink.

This report’s purpose is to improve public health protection by providing educational material to allow consumers to make educated decisions regarding any potential health risks pertaining to the quality, treatment, and management of their drinking water supply.

This year’s Water Quality Report along with previous years reports are available on the Fort Irwin website at http://www.irwin.army.mil/Post/Environment/. For questions concerning this report or concerning the water system, contact the Water Resources Manager with Directorate of Public Works, Fort Irwin at 380-4987. If you have questions concerning Fort Irwin Water System operation contact CH2MHILL at 386-9706.
