Santa Fe, NM – A 16-inch water transmission line was damaged this morning and water supply to the west sector of the Santa Fe County’s Water System disrupted. The west sector area includes La Tierra, La Mariposa, Las Campanas Estates I & II, La Serena, Tessera, Northwest Ranches, Salva Tierra, Tiera de Oro, Los Suenos Sonrisa, and Aldea subdivisions. Repair of the waterline is currently underway and is expected to be completed by 8:00 PM tonight.

 

The ruptured 16-inch transmission line, which feeds water from the City of Santa Fe’s ten million-gallon (10 MG) storage tank to the county’s water system, has been shut down for immediate repairs causing the loss of water for approximately 1200-1500 homes. The line was ruptured by a construction contractor during installation of a new parallel transmission line currently underway by the City of Santa Fe. This parallel line will move additional water to customers of both the City and County water systems. City residents will not be affected by this outage.

 

Affected residents may experience brown or rust colored water after water service resumes. Residents are encouraged to flush their lines by running taps inside and outside of their home until the water clears. A Boil Water Advisory may be issued by the County of Santa Fe.
