WHEELER ARMY AIRFIELD — Annual water quality reports for U.S. Army Garrison-Hawaii water systems are now available for review.

The USAG-HI Directorate of Public Works operates four water systems: Aliamanu Military Reservation, Fort Shafter, Schofield Barracks and Tripler Army Medical Center.

The Aliamanu report includes both the AMR and Red Hill Housing areas; the Schofield report includes Schofield Barracks, Wheeler Army Airfield and Helemano Military Reservation.

Since 1999, the Environmental Protection Agency has required public water suppliers to provide annual water quality reports to their water users. These reports are designed to educate the public on the origin of drinking water and provide water quality information for the previous year.

In Hawaii, the primary drinking water supply comes from underground aquifers fed by rainfall. Naturally occurring minerals, radioactive material and other substances resulting from animal or human activity may be dissolved by the rainfall and percolate into the aquifers. The EPA sets limits on the amount of such contaminants present in drinking water, and DPW monitors the drinking water to help ensure that no contaminant level is exceeded.

DPW works hard to provide Army Soldiers, families and employees with the highest water quality possible. DPW encourages residents and workers to look at the report for the installation where they live and/or work.
