Joe Pierce, a plumber with the 17th Civil Engineer Squadron, applies some elbow grease to unscrew a pipe from the no-longer-serviceable boiler which used to heat the water of Building 356. Mr. Pirece and two other 17 CES members replaced the old boiler with a new water heater Friday. The workers replaced the old boiler in response to reports received by the base housing office from Bldg. 356 resident of there not being hot water for their showers.

The three-man crew’s managed to restore running water to the showers the same day (Friday) the installation started. Dorm residents were delighted in discovering that hot water had been restored the following day.
