Improvements scheduled for water system

For the next six months 314th Civil Engineer Squadron is making improvements to the water system in the housing area.

This work will require one or more shutoffs of water to some residences. The contractor will be distributing leaflets to affected homes 24 hours in advance of any shutoff. Any shutoff will not last more than eight hours and will only occur after 8:30 am. Once water is restored to a residence you may find the water to be initially discolored — simply run the water for a few minutes from an outside faucet or your bathtub until the water is clear. If you have any questions please call Dianne Priddy in Civil Engineering Construction Management at 987-7679.

Pre-Move survey’s

When you PCS, the moving company is required to do a pre-move survey prior to your pack and pickup date. After visiting the Traffic Management Office and receiving a counseling, the carrier will call to set up an appointment for the survey. Pre-move surveys are conducted so the carrier knows what type of packing material to bring to your home to ensure your property is properly protected during transit. Nothing needs to be done on your part, just make sure you're home, and let the carrier know what specific items they will be moving. For questions or concerns regarding your pre move survey, please call the Traffic Management Flight at 987-3582.
