ANDERSEN AIR FORCE BASE, Guam -- Andersen Air Force Base's drinking water is safe to drink and is in compliance with all federal and local regulations, officials announced recently in the 2017 Annual Drinking Water Quality report.

For the year 2017, the Andersen Air Force Base Water System met all primary drinking water quality standards and did not violate any water quality standards. All safe drinking water reports, along with supporting laboratory reports were submitted on time as required by the Guam Environmental Protection Agency.

Under the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Consumer Confidence Reporting Rule of the Federal Safe Drinking Water Act, the base bioenvironmental engineering office is required to annually summarize water analytical test results from the previous year and make the summary report available to all water consumers.
