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 the Environmental Protection Agency’s 2016 lifetime health advisory level of 70 parts per trillion (ppt) for PFOS and PFOA (individually or combined). While not an enforceable regulatory standard, a lifetime health advisory 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 Wiesbaden, 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: 6.5 parts per trillion (ppt) in finished drinking water
Last Sampling: December 2022
Current PFOA + PFOS highest level: multiple systems on different schedules annual, every 2 years and every 3 years
Type of drinking water systems: purchased
