Source of Water

Your on-base drinking water comes from ground water sources: Mana Well and the County of Kauai's Waimea-Kekaha system. Mana Well is located just southeast of the magazine caves. Ground water is naturally filtered as it travels from the surface to the aquifer below ground. The water is pumped up from the acquifer, disinfected, flouridated, and piped into the distribution system. This report covers only the Mana Well source. For information on the Waimea-Kekaha system, please refer to County of Kauai's annual report by calling 808-245-5400.

Navy Water Requirements

In accordance with Navy policy, we add chlorine and flouride to your water supply. These items are added to your drinking water after it is pumped from the ground. We try to maintain the Navy's recommended concentration of approximately 0.7 ppm for flouride and 0.2 ppm for chlorine throughout the distribution system.

These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbial contaminants are avialable from the EPA's Safe Drinking Water Hotline, 1-800-426-4791.
