Notice of annual water quality report

By Chris Woodruff, Water Resources Manager
Fort Irwin DPW

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 U.S. Army.

Fort Irwin has recently completed the Year 2014 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, 2014 are available at http://www.irwin.army.mil/Community/Environment/Pages/WaterQualityRpt.aspx. This Web site also contains previous year’s reports.

It is important to Fort Irwin that our customers be informed about water quality on Fort Irwin.

The Year 2014 Water Quality Report meets all requirements for the Consumer Confidence Report for 2014. 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 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.

This year’s Water Quality Report along with previous years reports are available on the Fort Irwin Web site at http://www.irwin.army.mil/Community/Environment/Pages/WaterQualityRpt.aspx. 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 Fort Irwin Water System operations, contact CH2MHill at 386-9706.
