THE free potable water program initiated by the U.S. Air Force after Typhoon Yutu hit Saipan and Tinian last month ended on Monday at Pakpak Beach in San Antonio.
An Air Force officer who declined to be identified said their mission is now complete since almost all households on Saipan are now getting their water supply from the Commonwealth Utilities Corp.
The Air Force set up a reverse-osmosis system at the Garapan Fishing Base on Oct. 30 to produce potable water for island residents.
On Nov. 20, the Air Force moved its reverse-osmosis system setup to Pakpak Beach in San Antonio.
Twelve Air Force personnel headed by Lt. Eric Baldwin were in charge of the program.
