Boil water advisory for Cannon lifted

A boil water advisory for Joe Cannon Estates military housing near Cannon Air Force Base has been lifted, according to the 27th Special Operations Wing Facebook page.

According to a press release on Cannon’s website, a water service line broke Tuesday on Clarian Loop and water to multiple housing units was shut off to repair the line.

On Wednesday, a water valve to housing units on Kasserine Place and Juggler Loop was malfunctioning and replaced. During repairs, only the Clarian Loop pipes and Kasserine Place and Juggler Loop valve were exposed to the environment and were therefore susceptible to possible contamination.

Drinking water service provided to homes on the affected streets were certified free of contamination after water sample testing by the Bioenvironmental Engineering Flight, the 27th SOW Facebook page said.

The boil water advisory for Clarian Loop had been lifted earlier today.
