The utilities that support the camp come from a variety of sources. Water is primarily purchased from local authorities but there are facilities on camp for emergency water production. Electrical power is also provided by regional supply systems with the MFO possessing a reserve generating plant on the base to provide complete redundancy. A wastewater treatment plant on the camp provides the Force with treated, non-potable water for irrigation purposes. This has allowed the Force to sustain extensive plantings of trees, shrubs and some grassed areas which have improved the appearance of the camp along with providing some protection from the wind.
