MAGDALENA, N.M. (KRQE) - Trucks with 6,000-gallon tanks have been taking water into the village of Magdalena since Friday morning.
From there it's being pumped into the town's water towers in the hopes of keeping water flowing to residents and businesses.
Water began running out in the town's well earlier this week . Since then villagers have had to conserve their water use and are asked to continue with those water conservation efforts with new water being brought in.
The water is comng from the nearby Very Large Array area and the town of Socorro.
Village officials estimate that it could take up to another three weeks to get a new well drilled and operational. Until then, they hope to continue trucking in water and replenishing the tanks.
Although it may not be necessary, village officials are also asking residents to boil their water before they drink it as a precaution.
