Abstract: A wide spectrum of adverse water quality characteristics has been experienced at US Army installations throughout the country. These characteristics, both interim and long-term in nature, have health as well as aesthetic significance. Various alternatives generally explored to provide an acceptable quality of drinking water in such situations have included use of bottled water, boiling, hauling water, quick connection to nearby community sources, and Point of entry/point of use (POE/POU) technology. In some cases POE/POU technology has been judged to be the most viable option available. This paper discusses a survey concerning the use of POE/POU technology at US Army installations.
