10/4/2011 - YIGO, Guam-- -- The 36th Civil Engineer Squadron spent part of their weekend repairing a busted water main  placed beneath Marine Corps. Dr., Yigo, Guam in 1951.

Members of the 36th CES reported to the scene and diverted the water supply so Andersen Air Force Base could continue to have water throughout the repair.

This was the 20th repair the squadron has performed to the 60 year old pipe, and the 36th CES replaced the existing broken pipe with better equipment to ensure future breaks could be averted.

It only took the 36th CES roughly six hours to repair the pipe after arriving on scene.
