Providing Bulk Chilled Drinking Water to Expeditionary and Forward Operating ForcesBy Pure H2O
Marine units have come to rely on bottled water as the primary source of water resupply for forward operating units.
There are multiple dimensions to this issue, but chief among them are:
- The supply chain, life cycle costs associated with providing thousands of bottles of water daily
- The waste collection, handling, and removal challenges generated by the continuous stream of empty plastic bottles
- The direct energy costs associated with daily ground convoys and helicopter resupply missions to deliver bottled water
- The indirect costs - casualties to people and equipment - while conducting those resupply missions.
