Navyʼs 2011 Water Quality Reports delivered to consumers

Naval Facilities Engineering Command Hawaii

Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Hawaii completed distribution of its 2011 Water Quality Reports to Navy, Air Force and other Department of Defense (DoD) as well as some non-DoD customers on June 15.

“The important point to take away from these annual water quality reports issued by NAVFAC Hawaii is that the Navy is looking out for the health and safety of you and your family when it comes to drinking water,” said Wayne Yonehara, NAVFAC Hawaii environmental compliance product line coordinator.

“Many of us at work and at home drink Navy-provided water, so making sure it is of the highest standard is important to everyone who drinks it. And, as in past years, we can positively state your water is ‘safe’ to drink in accordance with all federal and state requirements,” Yonehara explained.

As a purveyor of water in Hawaii, NAVFAC is required by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to report test results on water that has been delivered over the past year.

Annual water quality reports, also called the consumer confidence reports (CCRs), provide data on the quality of drinking water provided to Navy water consumers by including information on the sources of water, health effects, compliance status and other related statistics. They also contain tables listing all contaminants detected in the water at levels above the EPA’s prescribed minimum detection limits.

NAVFAC Hawaii owns and operates six water systems: Barbers Point (Kalaeloa), Camp Stover, Naval Magazine (NAVMAG) Lualualei, Naval Computer and Telecommunications Area Master Station Pacific (NCTMAS PAC) Wahiawa, Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam (JBPHH) and Pacific Missile Range Facility (PMRF) Kauai. This year a report was developed for each system, with the exception of NAVMAG Lualualei which did not require a report since the system does not service any housing residents.

The appropriate hardcopy water quality report has been mailed to each of the Navy, Air Force and DoD commands which received water from NAVFAC Hawaii. Water consumers have been asked to post these reports in a public location so that all members of the command may view them.

All reports are also available via the command’s public website at http://bit.ly/NFHawaiiNew s. For military housing residents, distribution of the hard-copy water quality reports is being executed through various housing management offices. For the JBPHH water system, Navy housing residents should contact Forest City’s Residential Management office at the Aloha Center (Moanalua Shopping Center). Air Force housing residents on the JBPHH Hickam-side may contact Hickam Communities.

Camp Stover and NCTAMS PAC housing residents may obtain their water quality report from Forest City’s Wahiawa office (2976 Kahana St.).

Other housing areas that receive Navy water include the Iroquois Point Island Club, Kalaeloa Homes and the Coast Guard Red Hill housing area. Residents should contact their housing offices for the correct water quality report.

For personnel and residents at PMRF Kauai, water quality reports will be distributed by the NAVFAC Hawaii Public Works Department at Barking Sands.

Hard copies of all water quality report brochures may also be obtained from NAVFAC Hawaii’s Public Affairs Office by calling 471-7300 or the command’s environmental compliance office at 471-1171, ext. 203.

Electronic copies of all five brochures are also posted on NAVFAC Hawaii’s public website. Go to www.navfac.navy.mil. Select , , , . To get there quickly, go to http://bit.ly/NFHawaiiNews.
