DPU Water crews worked until 2 a.m. Tuesday to replace a corroded section of water main that blew out Monday afternoon.
Water in White may be cloudy due to entrained air, but is perfectly safe to drink, according to the Los Alamos Department of Public Utilities Department (DPU).
Public Works crews are bringing N.M. 4 back up to grade before paving the eastbound lane and then moving to pave the westbound lane.
Traffic control devices remain in place until road work is complete. County officials state that repairs could take all day; crews will work until the road is repaired.
