NMED News:
SANTA FE  The New Mexico Environment Department's (NMED) Drinking Water Bureau (DWB) is confirming a required "boil water advisory" for the Mora Inn and RV Park Water System in Mora County.
Mora Inn and RV Park Water System was required to issue the advisory Monday after bacteriological contamination (E. coli) was detected in repeat drinking water samples from the water system’s distribution system. Mora Inn and RV Park Water System is required to notify their water system users of this finding.
Mora Inn and RV Park Water System is a non-transient non-community public water system located approximately five miles northwest of Mora in Mora County and serves approximately 75 users per day.
This advisory applies to the drinking water from the Mora Inn and RV Park Water System, and does not extend to any other surrounding water systems.
Mora Inn and RV Park Water System users were advised to boil the water for one minute (3 minutes if above 6,500 feet in elevation) before drinking, cooking, washing fruits and vegetables, feeding a baby, brushing teeth, preparing drinks, making ice, and providing drinking water for pets.
More details about precautions in English and Spanish can be found on the DWB’s website at
The NMED DWB provides compliance oversight and technical assistance to the water system as necessary.
