- Empty and refill all ice trays, repeating this process at least three times
- Flush all toilets at least once
- Fridge water filters do not need to be replaced, but output should be run for 15 minutes
- On base dorm residents should follow these same procedures above

Base facility managers and Vandenberg Elementary School staff should follow the below instructions prior to water consumption:
- Follow all of the above instructions for homes (if fixtures are auto sensing, user will have to physically trigger sensor)
- Tape or hold down water fountain buttons for 15 minutes
- Fixtures include safety showers and eyewash stations connected to a building water supply
