Vandenberg Water Deemed Safe; Boil Order Lifted

Water at Vandenberg Air Force Base once again is safe to consume, officials said Thursday afternoon.

“Breaking News: Boil Water Notice Cancellation. Vandenberg AFB has lifted the Boil Water Notice due to certification that the water is safe for consumption. Normal use is approved,” the 30th Space Wing posted on Facebook.

Base officials instructed personnel to use bottled water or to boil water first before drinking it or using it for cooking after a backhoe sliced a water pipeline Tuesday afternoon.

Water was shut off Tuesday night while crews made repairs at Nebraska and South Dakota streets near the base medical clinic.

As a precautionary measure, officials ordered the water to be boiled until they could complete testing that water was safe.

The rules forced the closure of several eateries at Vandenberg.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.
