A water pump failure in Taos prompted several closures Friday morning. 

The town’s council officially declared a water emergency.

Closures include Taos Municipal Schools, offices in the town of Taos, the Taos Charter School and UNM Taos.

The town says residents will continue to get water, but there may be a drop in water pressure.

There are also water restrictions now in place that includes no outdoor watering and limiting tap water usage in restaurants.
