SUNLAND PARK, N.M. (AP) - Authorities are warning Sunland Park residents that a drinking water well has failed and system-wide outages are expected.

The Dona Ana County Sheriff's Office on Thursday evening was urging residents who depend on the Camino Real Regional Utility Authority to conserve in preparation for the expect outages.

The well was online when wind caused a power outage in the area. When the power came back on, the well did not resume pumping.

Crews are on scene, and officials say the well could be repaired as early as Friday.

The Camino Real Regional Utility Authority provides water service for Sunland Park and most of the unincorporated areas around the Santa Teresa County Club and the Santa Teresa Port of Entry.
