News Alert: Water Main Break On San Ildefonso Road

News Alert:

A water main break has occurred on San Ildefonso Road on North Mesa and customers east of Camino Uva may experience little to no water pressure.

Department of Public Utilities crews estimate water will be restored by midnight.

Department officials offer the following consideration to customers once water is restored:
  • Water may at first appear murky due to entrained air. This problem will resolve itself in a day or so;
  • For a day or two there may be a small amount of sediment or rust in the water that has been stirred up from the bottom of the water main. While aesthetically unpleasant, it does not pose a health risk;
  • Flushing home plumbing lines with cold water can help clear up the water sooner; and
  • If water quality problems persist for more than two days, contact the DPU at 505.662.8333.
