PART G - MAINTENANCE SUPPORT REQUIREMENTS
Supervising Coordination. The force structure for water support in a TO divides water support into DS and GS levels. DS
capabilities are sufficient to meet requirements in temperate, tropical, and arctic regions. However, in arid regions where
sufficient water sources are not available, GS water systems are established. Coordination of maintenance support for a unit,
general or direct support requires that your water section can still maintain mission requirements. To do this, you, as the
NCOIC, need to check that your mission requirements are being met and that there is no shortfall. You are also to ensure that
each water point under your command has only one ROWPU down for maintenance at any given time. It may be necessary to
rotate the ROWPU units to maintain production rates at a water point that is required to produce more potable water than
other water points.
In addition, as seen from the scenario, in cases of shortfall, it may be necessary to request additional equipment and
personnel. Therefore, coordination with the division G4 and the DMMC for maintenance support is required to ensure the
mission requirements are met. They can also upgrade priorities, if necessary, when ordering parts for equipment, putting
more water purification equipment into operation, or increasing your operating personnel requirements in order for you to
successfully meet the total daily demand of supported units.
Besides the delivery of equipment, parts, and personnel, maintenance support provides the necessary turnaround for
expendable supplies, including fuel, chemicals, and other supplies necessary for you to complete your mission.
PART H - INSPECTING PURIFICATION OPERATION REQUIREMENTS
Monitoring Inspection. You should inspect each water point as needed using DA Form 5456-R (Figs. 1-9 and 1-10). Some
water points require more attention than others, because of site conditions or lack of experience of personnel operating the
equipment. Once the historical data are established, you may require more or less inspections of a water point. After
completing inspections, forward the results to the DMMC.
