ELDORADO AREA WATER & SANITATION DISTRICT
2 North Chamisa Drive, Santa Fe, New Mexico 87508-9483
IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO OUR CUSTOMERS
May 1, 2023: Summer Watering Restrictions begin May 1, 2023 as part of the Water Restrictions & Alert Management Plan (WRAMP). This will be implemented yearly from May 1 through August 31, coinciding with the Water Conservation Surcharge. The Summer Watering Restrictions will help to ensure that wells can sustain the water supply required to meet customer demand, and water levels in the tanks can be maintained to the necessary levels. However, the General Manager or Board may initiate a Stage Alert at any time due to other factors. The April issue of Water Notes explains in more detail as does the website if you scroll to view 'District Updates.' Thank you.
