all personnel concerned with the water system's O&M. Many records will be kept for a
long time and should be protected from damage. Some records, such as maps, will
require occasional updating. A computerized information management system can
effectively meet all of these criteria. File hard copies of all records according to military
procedures. Guidance on the water system records that are commonly maintained can
be found under subsequent headings in this section. There is no substitute for good
Operating Records. Suggested records for the following unit processes
can be found in par. 2.1.5: activated carbon, aeration, chlorination, corrosion/scale
control, filtration, fluoridation, ion-exchange, iron and manganese control,
presedimentation, reverse osmosis, screening, sedimentation, water softening, and
water weed control.
Daily Logs. Enter each day's operating data in the daily operating log
and then in the monthly operating report (MOR) to provide a record of daily and
average monthly operations. The data recorded cover all aspects of operations
including a diary of routine operational duties, unusual conditions (operational and
maintenance), accidents, complaints, and visitors.
MORs. Each installation's water treatment facility prepares a monthly
report compiled from daily operation data reports. Monthly reports permit technical
review of current performance and comparison of performance over a long period.
Accumulated monthly reports show variations caused by changes of seasons, methods
of operation, and installation population.
These forms are used for preparing the MOR:
AF Form 1461, Water Utility Operating Log
NAVFAC Form 11340/2, Potable Water Treatment Plant Operating
DA Form 4141, Water General
The following forms are used with those mentioned above at installations
that have treatment in addition to disinfection, fluoridation, or treatment for scale and
