Condition and operability of installation. The condition of the installation will determine the feasibility of
its use. If engineer support is required to make repairs you must request support to estimate the costs in
time and materials involved so that a decision can be made to utilize it or bring in temporary systems.
Location. When determining if the existing installation is located strategically, you should use the same
criteria as you would for water storage and distribution systems.
Access. You must determine if the existing access to the installation is sufficient to allow the movement of
vehicles and equipment required for distribution.
Protection. Can the installation be sufficiently protected from enemy attack and/or sabotage.
Personnel requirements. You will need to determine the number and qualifications of personnel that will be
required to operate the installation.
Requesting Well Drilling When Required by OPLAN. Review OPLAN and determine if the
construction of wells is required. Submit request for engineer support. Receive information from engineers
on locations for potential wells in your AO. The engineers have a database for potential ground water
PART D - PROVIDING PLANNING DATA TO DIVISION/CORPS G4
Receiving From Forward And Main Water Points Expendable Supply Requirements.
When receiving expendable supply requirements, ensure that fuel and chemicals on hand are sufficient for
the anticipated duration of operations or until resupply can be effected.
Passing Requirements To Division G4 For Future Supply Planning. Once you have
received the requirements from forward and main water points, you can plan for future supply needs.
Planning for water support begins with determining the amount of water required.
Example Of Determining Expendable Supplies For 3,000-GPH ROWPU. You must
maintain a 30-day on-hand supply of expendable supplies. To monitor this, the water team chiefs are
required daily to provide completed Form 1713-R (Daily Water Production Log- ROWPU), and DA Form
1714-R (Daily Water Issue Log) (Figure 1-6 through 1-8). By reviewing the daily results on these forms, you
can establish historical data to enable you to forecast the need for expendable supplies. The most common
of these supplies for the 3,000-GPH ROWPU are fuel, oil, ROWPU chemicals, cartridge filters, anise tape,
O-rings, and lubricant. You will need to coordinate with DMMC based upon information from the OPLAN on
the turnaround time for ordering expendable supplies.
DA Form 1713-R contains information about: reordering supplies based on the unit's basic load on hand;
rates of consumption of products; size of issue; supply turnaround; and organizing scheduled/nonscheduled
maintenance, where one water point (or one ROWPU at each site) is always operational. It also provides
information on organizing personnel requirements for peak periods of production, issue, and maintenance, so
that water points are properly manned, developing water issue and distribution schedules; analyzing any
periods of downtime that impact operations or any unusual consumption of supplies; and recommending
corrective action as necessary.
DA Form 1714-R (Figure 1-3) includes information about the identification of units using an assigned
water point for water supply, verification of units arriving at scheduled times to receive water, verification of
units receiving an amount of water that was planned, and verification that the chlorine residual is at a
recommended level as prescribed by the Surgeon General (refer to Section I). In addition, DA Form 1714-R
provides data to be used for the organization of personnel for peak periods of issue and maintenance so that
the water points are properly manned; analysis of any periods of downtime that impact operations or any
unusual consumption of supplies; and recommended corrective actions as necessary.
