Bldg 157 Investigation Additional Information

This page has been created to provide those who are interested with more information regarding the ongoing bromate MCL exceedances in NAS I, Building 157. Our intention is to keep the NAS Sigonella community informed about our results and what actions will be taken to fix problems related to the water system.

Base leadership and water-quality engineers continue to seek the root cause for the presence of bromate in the water and are taking the following steps to further investigate the issue:

- Reviewing laboratory procedures to make sure all possible sources of laboratory error are eliminated

- Performing additional testing to identify bromate cause and, once identified, ensure that corrections achieve bromate level reductions ultimately below the MCL

- Perform an in-depth building pipe material and cross-connection survey to determine if structural changes are responsible.
