Progress made in Ruidoso
RUIDOSO — New Mexico officials say significant progress has been made in the effort to restore water service to the village of Ruidoso. The state Environment Department said water in the system isn’t contaminated, but a boil water advisory still is in effect. Residents are being advised to boil water for 5 minutes before drinking, cooking and washing dishes.
Bottled water for drinking is available at the main Fire Station in the village.
Massive water main problems occurred due to sub-zero temperatures that impacted New Mexico two weeks ago and also caused a natural gas outage affecting 32,000 for six days. Gov. Susana Martinez sent 100 additional members of the New Mexico National Guard to assist state and local officials Sunday. Ruidoso hopes to have water services completely restored today.
