The annual Fort Riley Drinking Water Consumer Confidence Report (CCR) for calendar year 2015 has been posted here. It is important that customers be aware of the efforts that are continually made to improve their water systems. Information about CCRs can be obtained from the EPA’s Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791. Copies also can be obtained by contacting the Water Quality Protection Regulations Manager at 785-239-2630. A link to the CCR is also posted on Fort Riley Environmental Division Facebook page here.
Corvias offers convenient, curbside trash pick-up every week. In addition to curbside collection of household refuse, residents can also place bulk trash items at the curb on collection day.
Recently, bulk trash items such as car seats, furniture and more have been placed at the curb on days other than standard trash collection days. This creates an eye sore and is a violation of the Resident Responsibility Guide. The weekly collection schedule for trash and recycling can be found here.
The Fort Riley recycling renter at BLDG 1630 also accepts recycling drop offs. Residents may bring electronics (other than CRT televisions and CRT computer monitors) to the recycling center for free recycling as well.
The Starbase program will be holding an event on Saturday, July 16th from 9-3pm. This event is being held at the Colyer Forsyth Community Center and is open to kids grades 4-6.

Space is limited. To reserve your child a space, please contact 785-717-2217.
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), corded window coverings are one of the top five hidden hazards in American homes, with infants and children dying each year from accidental strangling, is window cords. Since these blind and curtain cords are a serious risk for our children, Corvias Military Living wants to remind you and your family on the proper steps to staying safe. Be sure to keep all window cords out of the reach of children. This includes ensuring that all furniture and toys are away from windows and if possible, moved to another wall. Examine all shades and blinds in the home. If your home does not have the cordless blind style, make sure there are no accessible cords on the front, side, or back of the product. Do not place cribs, beds, and furniture close to the windows because children can climb on them and gain access to the cords. Make loose cords inaccessible. If the window shade has looped bead chains or nylon cords, install tension devices to keep the cord taut.
Following these tips will help keep you and your family safe from this hidden hazard. More information can be found by visiting the Window Safety Cord Council’s website, windowcoverings.org.
