FRESH WATER AT TAKHLI - Anyone know where the Takhli RTAFB fresh water supply source was that we used. For washing, brushing teeth, showering, drinking, cooking,etc. Washing clothes-(house girls & boys did most of that).... what water did they use?. It would be interesting to know. I don't remember ever being told to ration water in 69 so it's likely (maybe) that it wasn't trucked in. If they did truck it in, where did that water come from? Were the water came from may have varied over the years. |
My thought is they probably had a well. Maybe they just pumped it out of nearby klong. Kinda scary thinking about it. A friend of mine asked me about the water source. The VA admits that herbicides were used at least along the base perimeter. Wouldn't be possible for some of that to get into the ground water under the base. If water came from a well then... ???? The water may have been treated for bacteria and normal concerns in water systems but for Dioxins???
