Water Quality Month

Story by Cpl Micha Pierce on 08/16/2019

August is National Water Quality Month and the leaders of Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Cherry Point, North Carolina, and the city of Havelock, are excellent examples of combined efforts to ensure the regulations and policies of Waste Water Management are maintained to the standards set. Efforts to keep consistent tracking on any changes in water quality are important to maintaining the health and livelihood of Marines and Sailors on base as well as civilians in the local area who depend on a clean, reliable water source. Water quality checks are done once every week by the Navy Boat Docks on MCAS Cherry Point and the MCAS Cherry Point Environmental Affairs Department to test the chemical, physical, and biological characteristics of the surrounding surface waters and ensure they are safe.
