A boil advisory for Robins Air Force Base has been lifted.

The base posted on its Facebook page Monday that the Georgia Environmental Protection Division has retested the water and it is safe.

A boil water advisory was issued Saturday as a precaution, according to base Facebook posts.

A water sample from a pre-treated source found a fecal indicator, E. coli, in Well #8 on Tuesday, according to a post.

Base personnel may want to bring bottled water to work.

The water will be retested Monday.

“The positive sample was taken before any disinfection and is not necessarily representative of our drinking water,” one of the posts said. “This boil water notice is being issued as a preventive measure to ensure no contaminants reach your drinking water.”
