STAGE 1 Water Restrictions
Effective May 14, 2021, Stage 1 Water Restrictions will be in effect for the Eldorado Area Water and Sanitation District (EAWSD), most likely through September. A Stage 1 Water Alert is put into effect when it appears that the water supply may not be able to keep up with demand. Because the majority of New Mexico is experiencing exceptional drought conditions, the District has concluded that the only prudent course of action is to put into effect Stage 1 Water Restrictions. As May 14th approaches, you will begin to see road signs and posters in the community reminding you to comply with the Stage 1 Water Restrictions.

What is our water hardness?
Generally, the water hardness in Eldorado is about 300-350 parts per million or milligrams per liter. This is also equivalent to about 17-20 grains per gallon. If you wish to soften your tap water with a commercially available water softener, the installer will want to know this water hardness level in order to properly adjust the softener.
