Boil water advisory lifted for Landing Zone

Freedom New Mexico

The boil water advisory for The Landing Zone has been lifted by the New Mexico Environmental Department following two consecutive water samplings that tested negative for the E. Coli bacteria April 26, according to a release from Cannon Air Force Base’s public affairs office.

Several corrective actions were also taken, including disinfecting the water system by increasing the chlorination level, and identifying and replacing possible sources of contamination, an outdoor spigot.

In addition to the spigot and piping replacement, The Landing Zone is being placed on a quarterly water flush cycle, to mitigate the chance of future contaminations.
