Public notice of the 2013 Fort Irwin water quality report

 

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 2013 Water Quality Report for the installation. CH2MHill routinely monitors 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 Dec. 31, 2013 are available at http://www.irwin.army.mil/Community/Environment/Pages/WaterQualityRpt.aspx .

The 2013 Water Quality Report meets all requirements for the Consumer Confidence Report for 2013. The Environmental Protection Agency and 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 water exceeded the maximum contaminate limits for arsenic and fluoride. The reverse osmosis 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.

For questions concerning this report or concerning the water system, contact the Water Resources Manager, Directorate of Public Works at 380-4987. If you have questions concerning the Fort Irwin water system operation contact CH2MHill at 386-9706.
