Please note what your are failing to recognize is that very few, if any, military installations in the lower 48 states produce their own water. They receive the water supply from the local municipality. I back this up with currently 10 years of active duty Navy experience as a Civil Engineer. Also, please remember that the two main emerging contaminates you elude to as a result of using AFFF, PFOS and PFOA, are well-removed using Granular Activated Charcoal. The simple in-line filter most folks have will do just fine. https://www.epa.gov/sciencematters/r...t-technologies
By the end of this year, a maximum contaminant level (MCL) should be established by the EPA for PFOS and PFOA. Once that MCL is set and municipalities will be required to comply with that MCL, then you can worry away if PFOS and PFOA are in your water. https://www.epa.gov/newsreleases/epa...as-action-plan
For all the other folks who have the access to DOD Campgrounds, please continue to patronize.
