Water Line Breaks On 33rd Street Repaired; Water Restored


Water crews with the Los Alamos Department of Public Utilities restored water to all customers on 33rd through 39th and Walnut streets by 8:30 p.m. Wednesday. 

Department officials offer the following information to customers:

  • Water at first may 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 was 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 for a couple of minutes can help clear up the water sooner. 
  • If water quality problems persist for more than two days, water customers should contact the department at 505.662.8333 or CustomerCare@lacnm.us.
