41 APPENDIX C Example Water Cabinet Operation and Maintenance Standard Operating Procedure for an International Terminal The standard operating procedure (SOP) included in this appendix is an example of a document in use at an international terminal at an undisclosed airport. It is based on International Air Transport Association recommendations, which are not requirements, and does not reflect the requirements of the EPA, U.S. Food and Drug Administration, or FAA. For additional information about actions airlines take to ensure safe drinking water is provided by aircraft water systems, and their activities to comply with the ADWR, consider contacting individual airlines.

Write on the bottle label: date and time of sampling, Terminal and water cabinet identification. Place the sample bottle under the end of the hose and fill without previous rinsing, allowing for a small quantity of air at the top of the bottle when capped. CAUTION: During all sampling operations, eliminate contact between the sterile bottle (border/lip and inside of cap) and fingers, or any other non-sterile part of the sampling area. Sample Preservation and Transportation to Laboratory Upon collection, samples will be kept at 4-6Â° C on ice in a cooler. Until transportation is possible, samples shall be kept on ice or in a refrigerator. Bottles will be sent together under laboratory chain of custody. Samples for physicochemical factors must be received by the laboratory within 24 hours and samples for microbial analysis must be received by the laboratory within 6 hours. Should a laboratory result exceed applicable standards, the water cabinet must be immediately taken out of service, locked out, and corrective actions taken to mitigate the issue. Water servicing will resume after subsequent analyses have shown acceptable results have been achieved. Visual Inspection In addition to collection of samples for analytical parameters, water shall be visually inspected. For the water to be acceptable it should be of appropriate color, visually clear, bright and free from solid matter and noticeable odor. If particulates are observed, flush the line for an additional 5 minutes, and then collect another sample for observations. If visual particulates or pollution persists, the source supply shall be interrupted until laboratory analysis produces acceptable results.

Odor is expressed in units of Threshold Odor Number (TON) which is a qualitative test performed by trained personnel. The TON is established by diluting the drinking water sample with odor-free water until the least, definitively perceptible odor is achieved. 4. Secondary Maximum Contaminant Level 6.0 Record Keeping Water quality records shall be maintained for three years.
