The JBER Water Quality Program works to ensure that JBER is in compliance with the numerous federal, state, local, and DoD regulations pertaining to storm water and wastewater. These programs are regulated by the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation (ADEC) and Anchorage Water and Wastewater Utility (AWWU) and require comprehensive inspection of all potential water pollutant sources and activities.
Storm water is water from rain or snow melt that is not absorbed into the groundwater supply and allowed to flow over impervious surfaces collecting trash and pollutants which are then deposited into storm drains and eventually into our creeks, streams, and rivers without benefit of treatment.
