Drinking water at Fort McCoy meets quality standards

Drinking water at Fort McCoy meets all federal and state laws and is suitable for all uses, including drinking, washing, etc., for both military and civilian personnel, according to the Fort McCoy Directorate of Public Works (DPW) Environmental Division.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires organizations that provide drinking water to publish annual reports to inform their customers about the quality of the water being provided. Fort McCoy personnel continually monitor the drinking water to provide a safe and dependable water supply and to protect the installation’s water resources.

Fort McCoy’s 2011 Consumer Confidence Report (CCR) is published to inform the installation work force and visitors about the quality of water delivered to its customers every day.

All of the testing conducted for the report indicates that Fort McCoy’s water supply meets federal and state regulations. Questions can be directed to the DPW Water Treatment Plant at 608-388-2323.

The complete 2011 report is available in the Reading Room at http://www.mccoy.army.mil/ReadingRoom/index.asp.

The CCR will not be mailed, but also is available upon request by contacting Michael Miller at 608-388-6546.

More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the EPA safe drinking water hotline at 1-800-426-4791.

All drinking water, including bottled water, reasonably may be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that water poses a health risk.
