FAIRBANKS- A popular well 10 miles north of Fairbanks will reopen Tuesday morning.

Water will flow again starting at 10 a.m. from the water collection point at Fox.
The well stopped flowing Oct. 10.
It provided water to people who live in cabins without running water and others who fill tanks because they like the taste.
The Alaska Department of Transportation maintains the well. Spokeswoman Hannah Blankenship says a contractor forced pressurized air into the well to clean out debris and sediment around the pump and re-establish flow.
She says the contractor also replaced the old well pump.
