LOS LUNAS, N.M. (KRQE) – On Friday, August 11, the Village of Los Lunas set a “no consumption of water alert.” Water has been restored, and a boil advisory has been issued.

Officials said they became aware of a water line break west of Huning Ranch West Loop SW. around 7:45 Friday morning. They believed an error between water wells caused an overflow leading to the erosion of dirt in the area causing the line break, but there does not appear to be damage to any of the wells. The water was restored after crews were able to “create a by-pass and flush the system.”

Community members are urged to boil their water before use as a precautionary method. Affect areas can be seen below.
