Persistent hacking cough, green phlegm due to change in water. Quick remedy?

My 18 yr old son has been having a hacking cough for about 2 wks and recently coughed out green phlegm . Tomorrow night he has to return to camp for army training. Can he take neuflo 90mg 2nite and tmr or is there any other quick remedy ? He claims it s due to catchment water that he has to drink every day which smells of chemicals and has a lot of sediment.
