District commander tours Fort Irwin construction projects
USACE construction representive Dan Cook explains the EDR technology process for water treatment to Los Angeles District Commander Col. Kirk Gibbs at the Fort Irwin Water Works, Sept. 9. “Fort Irwin is such an important Army post, as far as the readiness of our entire Army,” said Gibbs. “To be a partner with them and doing construction that supports that overall readiness mission, which is Gen. Milley’s [Gen. Mark A. Milley, Army chief of staff] number one priority, readiness.” Gibbs further commented that the work that the District is doing at the NTC supports one of USACE’s Campaign Plan goals of “Support National Security,” in that the District is partnering with the installation to deliver and maintain enduring installations. Also, the water treatment plant construction project, known as the Irwin Water Works, clearly supports another objective of the campaign plan to achievie energy security and sustainability.
