Abstract : The table below lists the results of the most recent drinking water tests. During calendar year 2011, WSMR conducted tests for volatile organic chemicals (VOCs), synthetic organic chemicals (SOCs), inorganic chemicals (IOCs), disinfection by-products, and bacteriological contaminants. The contaminants detected in your water are shown under the column heading Main Post. The two columns labeled Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) and Maximum Contaminant Level Goal (MCLG) show the EPA limits for safe drinking water. If a contaminant is not listed in this table, then it was not detected in your drinking water. All contaminants detected were at low levels which are generally not harmful in drinking water. A few naturally occurring minerals may actually improve the taste of drinking water and have nutritional value at low levels.
