Abstract : The Safe Drinking Water Act and associated regulations developed by USEPA and state and local agencies have expanded the standards and requirements on water suppliers to assure that a safe, high quality, and continuous supply of drinking (potable) water is provided to all consumers by all providers. Currently, Wright-Patterson AFB (Base) uses groundwater sources on the Base to supply all portable water to Areas A, B and C. The base has individual treatment facilities located at each Area, which include air strippers, polyphosphate addition, chlorination, carbon dioxide addition, softening, and fluoride addition. The Base has initiated an aggressive and comprehensive program to fully evaluate available water supply and treatment alternatives to comply with all Federal and State regulations and to assure that a safe and reliable supply of potable water is available for all base activities. The purpose of this Long-Range Water Plan is to define and evaluate alternatives for providing the public water systems on the Base with water that will meet future demands as well as environmental regulations. These alternatives include treatment systems upgrades, maintenance/repair of existing treatment components, or a completely new water supply. The recommended alternatives are to be based on hydrogeologic and water quality data, an assessment of the existing water supply and treatment systems, and off-Base sources of water. -BKA
