APS states that students may also remain at the middle school. Buses will also run as normal, according to the district.
A spokesman for the Albuquerque Bernalillo County Water Utility Authority said Monday afternoon the outage was due to a problem with plumbing on school grounds, but was not a problem caused by the Water Authority. In email statement, ABCWUA spokesman David Morgan says the utility was able to confirm the repair work being done at the school is on APS property, not ABCWUA property.
