SANTA FE, N.M. — Those utilizing the Chama Water System in Rio Arriba County are no longer being asked to boil their drinking water, according to the New Mexico Environment Department.
NMED Spokeswoman Maddy Hayden said the advisory, put in place on April 22, was lifted Saturday after the issues with the water system were repaired.
“Subsequent sampling data indicates that the treatment plant is producing water that meets turbidity requirements,” she said.
Hayden said the advisory was issued to communities served by the Chama Water System after NMED discovered failures to report water quality data from their treatment system.
At that point, a precautionary boil advisory had already been put in place on April 10 due to water outages in the system.
