Water Quality Information

The health and well-being of Sailors, their families and civilians are the Navy’s top priority, including those assigned to overseas Navy installations. 

CNRNW’s drinking water systems comply with all applicable Federal, State, and local safe drinking water regulations, Executive Orders, and Navy Policy by performing water quality monitoring (including some or all of the following based on system type: bacteria, lead, copper, disinfection by-products, and other chemicals) and providing customers an annual Consumer Confidence Report as well as investigating and resolving customer complaints.

Other CNRNW policy requirements include Distribution System Sanitary Survey reviews and programs for cross-connection control, backflow prevention, operation and maintenance, and unidirectional flushing. All these programs are designed to ensure that safe drinking water is delivered to every consumer.

Results for Lead in Drinking Water at Child Development and Youth Centers

The Navy preforms testing drinking water at its Child Development Centers, Child Development Group Homes, Youth Centers, and Schools.  This testing is recommended by EPA in schools and day care centers but is not required.  However, in the interest of the health and welfare of the children using its facilities, the Navy has adopted a policy to perform the testing.  For more information on the testing please visit the CNIC Lead in Priority Area Sampling Program page.

As part of telling you about lead in drinking water at priority areas, links are provided on this page that contain information on general water quality (Consumer Confidence Reports) at Navy installations, sources of lead in the environment, potential sources of lead in schools, lead facts for parents, a lead public health fact sheet, procedures to minimize lead exposure from drinking water, and an EPA fact sheet and FAQs document on lead in schools and child care facilities, as well as other important information.

Parents are encouraged to contact the CDC staff, command leadership or their health care provider if they have individual questions or would like assistance in understanding and interpreting the results. If you have any health questions or concerns, we encourage you to call your health care provider.
