Beale AFB Drinking Water is Safe for Consumption

Executive Summary on Beale AFB 2018 Consumer Confidence Report (CCR)

The CCR has been prepared to comply with Environmental Protection Agency, California Department of Public Health and Safe Drinking Water Act guidelines. Per these regulations, the CCR must be published by 1 July each calendar year. This report is provided to the California Department of Public Health, base consumers, and HQ ACC/SG. It provides an overview of the quality of water to base populace on Beale AFB, in addition to outlining regulated sampling results for that year.

In order to ensure that the tap water is safe to drink, the State Water Resources Control Board regulates specific limits for certain contaminants found in the water provided by a public water system (PWS). Provided in this report are a list of contaminants required to be sampled for PWS permit #5810700. Sample frequency can range from weekly to every 10 years. The most recent sample results with the year sampled are reported in the CCR for all contaminants required for this permit. Results are reported as a range or a single sample value depending on the sampling requirement for that particular contaminant. This report is not designed to display a trend analysis of prior results but to inform consumers of the water quality for the current reporting year. Per federal regulation, if any samples are above the maximum contaminant level (MCL), Beale AFB is required to notify the regulatory agency immediately with a mitigation plan. No contaminants sampled in the drinking water were out of permissible range for calendar year 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, or 2014. In addition, the Beale AFB drinking water program received two Notice of Violations (NOV) from the state of California during 2018 which is required to be reported on the CCR. One violation has been closed out and no further actions are required, however, the second violation regarding 1,2,3 Tricholopropane is still open but will be closed out no later than 30 Sep 2019. For more information on these violations, please refer to page 8 of the 2018 Consumer Confidence Report.

Memorandum: Positive Duty Environment Policy 

(to view the Memorandum click here)

 

   All Recce Town members, uniformed or civilian, are responsible for creating and maintaining a positive, respectful, and dignified duty environment. Unprofessional behavior, including unacceptable language, can destroy an individual’s sense of esprit de corps. A respectful and cohesive environment is essential for our Recce Airmen and Civilians to achieve mission success.

   Unacceptable language includes vulgar and indecent references to a person’s race, color, religion, national origin, and/or sex. Such language includes sexual harassment, inappropriate jokes, and graphic comments about another person’s body, explicit or implicit suggestive displays, pictures, and cartoons.

   In addition to the above, unprofessional behavior includes undue command or supervisory influence, bullying, intimidation, making false, malicious, or unfounded statements about another person. Service members and employees must not engage in such behavior, nor should they tolerate it.

   The missions performed by the Airmen and Civilians of Recce Town USA are far too important to the defense of our nation to be placed at risk by unprofessional behavior. Everyone here deserves an environment that inspires excellence. Unprofessional behavior, including the use of unacceptable language, cannot be tolerated. I expect commanders, supervisors and subordinates alike to take ownership of their places of duty to establish and sustain a positive, warfighting spirit that keeps us one step ahead of our adversaries.

 

OPSEC

 

  It’s important to remember OPSEC. Implementing effective OPSEC practices is essential for the 9 RWs continued ability to project lethal airpower against any adversary. Consequently, I expect each and every Recce - assigned units, tenants, and visiting units - to apply OPSEC around the clock.  Keep in mind the 9 RW has a 100% shred policy.  All information is to be protected until properly destroyed IAW AFI 33-332.  If, this is accomplished by an off-base company then the information should be supervised until all the material has been properly shredded.   

  Personnel should never doubt that our potential adversaries want to know how this wing is consistently and exceptionally utilizing its resources against our enemy wherever we deploy. Though unclassified, Critical Information, PA, PII and UCI must be protected or it will provide any potential adversary the information they need to impact the way we operate. Therefore, we will integrate OPSEC into our wing planning processes and into daily operations. 

   Any questions regarding the OPSEC program or shredding contact Mr. Paul R. Crosby at 634-2335 or Mr. Dana C. Weeks at 634-2388.
