Abstract : The purpose of this technical guide (TG) is to provide U.S. Army installations with guidance on meeting the requirements pursuant to the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) with amendments of 1986 and 1988. Compliance with this law is essential to providing drinking water that is protective of consumer health. Army Regulation (AR) 200-1, Environmental Protection and Enhancement, and AR 420-46, Water Supply and Wastewater, require all Continental United States (CONUS) Army installations to provide drinking water in compliance with the SDWA and all applicable State and local regulations. All Outside Continental United States (OCONUS) Army installations must comply with the most strict standards of either the SDWA as written in the Overseas Environmental Baseline Guidance Document (OEBGD), the host nation, or the Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA).
