As the supervisor of a water point, you must be able to monitor the operation of the water point according to the requirements
set forth in doctrine. The success of your mission depends upon your proper planning and execution. It is your responsibility
to provide potable water in adequate quantity and quality to the consumers. This lesson is designed to help you meet the
necessary requirements to successfully carry out your responsibilities as a water treatment NCO.
PART A: MISSION WATER REQUIREMENTS
Water Use and Requirements. As a water treatment supervisor, you need to review the mission water

necessary to determine the gallon-per-man-per-day consumption factor. You will do this by using Table 1-
1, an excerpt from the Potable Water Planning Guide (PWPG).
