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.

We (dorm residents) didn’t think the workers were going to do the job that quickly,” said Airman 1st Class Daniel Sanchez. “I’m sure a lot of us are glad we don’t have to take cold showers anymore.” (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Luis Loza Gutierrez) Keeping the water running
