ANALYZE WATER RECONNAISSANCE RESULTS
Critical Task: 101-540-3001
This lesson covers the procedures for analyzing water reconnaissance results.
TERMINAL LEARNING OBJECTIVE:
Analyze water reconnaissance results.
You will be given a completed DA Form 1712-R.
Select a site based on data from DA Form 1712-R that provides the best routes of
communication, cover, and concealment; adequate dispersion factors/site conditions and the
least site preparation; and sufficient water quantity and quality that meet TB MED 577 raw
water quality standards.
The material contained in this lesson was derived from the following publications: FM 10-
52, FM 10-52-1, TB MED 577, and STP10-77W14-SM-TG.
To establish water purification operations and water storage sites in field environments, it is necessary to perform
reconnaissance of possible areas. Before the reconnaissance, you must brief the reconnaissance team supervisor
on the total daily water requirements (in gallons). The reconnaissance team may perform a ground
reconnaissance, an air reconnaissance, or both. The results of the reconnaissance are recorded on DA Form
1712-R. The reconnaissance team should wear MOPP 4 until the area has been declared clear.
