USAG Ansbach

DRINKING WATER

The Army is committed to ensuring quality drinking water is provided to its Soldiers, family members, and civilians. Proactive sampling is performed by the Army on its drinking water systems and coordination with other purveyors of drinking water to installations occurs to ensure PFOS/PFOA remains below 70 parts per trillion (ppt) for PFOS and PFOA (individually or combined). While not an enforceable regulatory standard, this represents a concentration in drinking water that is not expected to produce adverse health effects if the water is consumed over an entire lifetime.

Status:  Finished drinking water, which is the treated water people drink at U.S. Army Garrison Ansbach, is purchased by the Army. Water testing for PFOS/PFOA can be performed by either the drinking water provider or the Army.  There have been no reported exceedances of the EPA 2016 lifetime health advisory levels.

PFOA + PFOS results:  3.5 parts per trillion (ppt) in finished drinking water

Test Results Date:  February 2023

Testing Frequency:  annually/every 2 years and every 3 years (Different systems are on different schedules)

Future Testing Event:  March 2024

Type of drinking water systems:  purchased
