Army Techniques Publication ATP 4-44 / MCRP 3-17.7Q Water Support Operations October 2015 is the United States Army and United States Marine Corps manual for planning and executing water support for missions conducted across the full range of military operations. In the U.S. Army, water support operations are a Quartermaster Corps function, as well as a component of Army Logistics. Army Logistics is an element of the sustainment warfighting function, which provides the operational commander freedom of action, extended operational reach, and operational endurance. Water support operations include water treatment, storage and distribution. Water treatment is a field service function, while water storage and distribution are supply functions. In the U.S. Marine Corps, water support operations are a general engineering function, as well as a component of tactical-level logistics. Logistics is a warfighting function in the Marine Corps. Water support operations are critical to the U.S. Army and U.S. Marine Corps; they directly impact the depth and duration of military operations. ATP 4-44/MCRP 3-17.7Q will combine, restructure, and update information previously published in three field manuals: FM 10-52, Water Supply in Theaters of Operations, dated 11 July 1990. FM 10-52-1, Water Supply Point Equipment and Operations, dated 18 June 1991. FM 10-115, Quartermaster Water Units, dated 15 February 1989. ATP 4-44/MCRP 3-17.7Q contains numerous revisions. The title has been changed to Water Support Operations to correctly incorporate terminology from FM 4-40, Quartermaster Operations and JP 4-03, Joint Bulk Petroleum and Water Doctrine. This publication incorporates current terminology from the Army’s operational concept described in ADRP 3-0, Unified Land Operations. Additional current terminology is also included from FM 4-40, Quartermaster Operations, Technical Bulletin Medical 577, Sanitary Control And Surveillance of Field Water Supplies, JP 4-03, Joint Bulk Petroleum and Water Doctrine, STANAG 2136, Requirements for Water Potability during Field Operations and in Emergency Situations, and STANAG 2885, Emergency Supply of Water in Operations. Information that has been revised from previous publications includes force structure changes, new equipment fielding, and improved planning techniques. Information that has been added to this publication includes strategic partners, web-based planning tools, environmental stewardship, and location of joint welldigging capabilities. ATP 4-44/MCRP 3-17.7Q contains five chapters: Chapter 1 provides an overview of water support operations, to include water treatment, storage, distribution, and issue. In addition, this chapter will familiarize the reader with water organizations and staffs in the United States Army and United States Marine Corps.

Water planning tools are provided up front to assist staff members and water support personnel in planning operations. Environmental and health considerations are also discussed. Chapter 3 provides considerations for developing a water site to improve efficiency. This chapter will also include techniques for improving a water source to meet raw water requirements. Chapter 4 discusses water treatment operations, to include water quality, water treatment process, operator level planning, equipment, reports, and safety. In addition, this chapter will discuss extreme weather and environmental considerations. Chapter 5 discusses water storage, distribution, and issue operations.
