The Department of Defense is trying to develop an alternative to clean drinking water.
That means drinking water for veterans, people with disabilities, the poor and those with preexisting conditions.
The new technology could be called the purified water standard.
It could be a big boon for the military, and a boon for local communities.
If approved, the standards would require bottled water for soldiers, sailors and airmen, and water purifiers for civilians and veterans.
The Army’s water authority would be responsible for developing and implementing the new water standards.
The water authority, which is funded largely by the Department of Energy, would oversee testing of the purified drinking water and other water systems, including wastewater treatment plants.
It would also have authority to regulate the use of the water and issue permits to farmers to add purification devices to their fields.
The standards would also help the military diversify its supply of clean drinking and wastewater water, a goal that has gained steam over the past decade.
The military has been using purified water since the 1960s and 1970s, when the Department Of Energy was developing a chemical and biological warfare program.
The U.S. military’s main drinking water source, the Ogallala Aquifer, supplies water to about 70 percent of the population, according to the Army.
The rest comes from a system of underground pipes that run through the soil, a process called desalination.
The Ogallalas watershed is about 100 miles long and runs from Mississippi to the Atlantic Ocean.
The corps of engineers for the Army’s Department of the Army, the water authority and the Corps of Engineers said they hope to have a purified water rule in place by the end of this year.
They hope to finalize the rules in 2018.
They want to put the rules out for public comment in 2020 and submit them for approval by the Pentagon.
They said the water standards are modeled after the standards the Army used when it developed its chemical warfare program, the Chemical and Biological Warfare Program Standard.
The standard is meant to help meet military requirements for water and wastewater treatment and disinfection and is modeled on other federal standards.
It also is expected to help ensure safe and healthy drinking water supply for veterans.
In July, the Army announced a plan to expand its water treatment plants and make more water purification plants available.
Officials said the increased capacity would allow the Army to more rapidly treat waste water and ensure it is treated for the contaminants that cause illnesses in people who have water-borne illnesses, such as diabetes.
The agency said the additional plants would be used to treat wastewater and desalinate water for military veterans and the sick.
The expanded plant capacity would cost $1.3 billion and take effect in 2020, the Corps said.
The first batch of water purifying plants would come online in 2019.
Army officials said the first plants would process around 2 million gallons of purified water per day.
The plan was to increase that capacity to 3 million gallons per day by 2020.
The Corps said the Army has a large stockpile of purified drinking and sewage water and plans to tap it for its veterans.
Officials have said that if the Army can tap the water, the military would be able to provide clean drinking or wastewater to military veterans, some of whom have chronic health conditions.
In December, the government of Israel said it would begin a program to tap the Ogalala Aquifers water to produce purified drinking tap water, but it has yet to begin a study to see how it will accomplish that goal.
In January, the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) said that some countries are moving to produce more purified drinking or sewage water to supply drinking water to their citizens.
But the FAO said that it will not be able afford to buy such purified water for use by civilians and that it could not guarantee that such purified drinking would be safe for people with chronic diseases.
In the meantime, water authorities in many countries have begun to produce and sell purified water that is clean, sanitary and easy to use.
The EPA said last week that it has begun testing water used for domestic and foreign consumption to see if it is safe to drink.
The testing is aimed at evaluating whether it is a safe source of drinking water, which the agency says is crucial for drinking water quality.
The test includes analyzing levels of chlorine, ammonia and carbon monoxide.
The results will help the EPA determine if the water is safe for use in the U
