personnel work schedules and equipment maintenance schedules for the water point. You will inspect the water
point using DA Form 5456-R.
In analyzing a completed DA Form 1713-R (see Figure 3-1 and 3-2), you should identify any unusual chemical or
fuel consumption, downtime, or gage or indicator reading. You should identify supplies (chemical/POL) required
for reordering based on on-hand basic load, consumption rate of the product, unit size of issue, and supply
turnaround time. You should plan scheduled and non-scheduled maintenance of equipment where one unit will
always be in operation or ready for operation to continue the mission. Schedule personnel for peak periods of
production, issue, and maintenance so that the shifts are properly manned. Forward a copy of the completed DA
Form 1713-R to your supervisor for disposition of the water report.
In analyzing a completed DA Form 1714-R (see Figure 3-3), you should verify that the level of chlorine residual
adheres to The Surgeon General's specifications. Schedule personnel for peak periods of issue and maintenance
so that shifts are properly manned. Forward one copy of a completed DA Form 1714-R to your supervisor for
disposition of the water report.
In analyzing a completed DA Form 1714-1-R (see Figure 3-4), you should also verify that the level of chlorine
residual adheres to The Surgeon General's specifications. Schedule personnel and forward a copy of the form as
you did for DA Form 1714-R.
In developing personnel work schedules for the water point, arrange for adequate personnel coverage for each 24
hours of operation at the water point. Schedule adequate meal, sleep, and break times. Avoid conflict with
maintenance, issue, or distribution schedules. Obtain your supervisor's approval of the work schedule.
In developing an equipment maintenance schedule for the water point, schedule 4 hours of maintenance for every
20 hours of operation. Schedule no more than one unit down for maintenance at a time. Avoid conflict with
work, issue, or distribution schedules. Obtain supervisor's approval of maintenance schedule.
When inspecting the water point (see Figure 3-5 and 3-6), inspect the development, bivouac area, and water
source. Inspect equipment such as intake systems, discharge lines, purifiers, generators, and storage tanks. Check
that operators are wearing hearing protection, rubber gloves, and goggles as required. Inspect reports and logs for
timely and accurate recording of all gage and meter readings. Inspect chemical containers for proper labeling,
capping, and storage.
