Water consumers on Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune and Marine Corps Air Station New River will soon be receiving easy-to-understand Consumer Confidence Reports that will allow them to make informed choices that affect the health of their families and themselves.

What is a Consumer Confidence Report?

As a result of the Consumer Confidence Rule developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in August of 1998, all public water systems, including the water supply systems at MCB Camp Lejeune and MCAS New River, are required to publish an annual report on the quality of the drinking water provided to consumers.

The annual Consumer Confidence Report is like a report card that provides facts about the drinking water on the installation.

The report identifies the source of our drinking water and details any contaminants detected during the reporting year while also providing important health information.

By July 1, all residents on MCB Camp Lejeune and MCAS New River will be notified by their community newsletters and/or in an email provided by their property managers on how to access the report.

Copies of the 2017 MCB Camp Lejeune Consumer Confidence Report will be available at the MCB Camp Lejeune Communications Strategy and Operations office in building 67 and the MCAS New River Environmental, Safety and Geospatial Services Department in building AS211.

For additional information contact James Marshall-Zank or Travis Voorhees at 451-5003, or the COMMSTRAT office at 451-5655. The Consumer Confidence Reports will also be posted on the following Environmental Management Division web page URL under Annual Reports:
