Abstract:

This publication addresses the requirements and responsibilities and provides guidelines for operation of water terminal facilities in support of a US joint force. Water terminals are key nodes in the total distribution system that must be established to ensure the success of a military operation. Water terminal selection must consider all relevant factors, because sustainment will hinge heavily on the water terminals effectiveness. Geographic combatant commanders are responsible for maintaining an effective distribution network throughout the range of military operations and for prescribing policies and procedures relating to that distribution network within their theaters. The selection and operation of water terminals within the continental United States is the responsibility of the Commander in Chief US Transportation Command USCINCTRANS.
