WATER MAIN BREAK ALERT
Please be advised that there is a service outage due to a large water main break in the vicinity of Avenida Eldorado and the railroad tracks affecting approximately 300-400 customers north of Avenida Eldorado to Avenida Vista Grande bounded by Avenida de Compadres and Torreon (see attached map). EAWSD crews are working diligently to repair the water main break as quickly as possible, but you can expect the service outage to last approximately 4 to 8 hours, or longer.

Stage 1 Water Restrictions in Effect as of May 14, 2015
The Eldorado Area Water and Sanitation District (EAWSD) is imposing water restrictions on its customers beginning Thursday, May 14, 2015. A Stage 1 Water Alert is put into effect when it appears that water supply may not be able to keep up with demand or in anticipation of supply lagging demand during drought periods or extended periods of exceptionally hot weather. Water production is limited this year owing to the impact of ongoing drought conditions on the District’s wells. The water levels in two District wells drilled into the Galisteo Creek Alluvium near Lamy are too low to pump during years of drought and low winter snow pack in the watershed. This year we are also seeing the effects of five years of sustained drought conditions, resulting in reduced production levels in two other major District wells.
The District is taking action to implement water supply projects that will ease the burdens on the water system under future drought conditions. If a more severe water alert is posted, it will be advertised on the District website, on signs posted in the Eldorado area, on posters in various locations in the community, and through a press release to the local area newspapers. Likewise, similar notification will be provided when the Water Alert is lifted. Meanwhile, EAWSD customers are being asked to continue their water conservation efforts with special attention to reducing usage on weekends, which are typically the highest usage periods.
