Boil water advisory lifted for Village of Angel Fire

ANGEL FIRE, N.M. — The New Mexico Environment Department confirmed Monday the Village of Angel Fire lifted a boil water advisory.

The department required the village water system to issue the advisory after detecting E.coli in the water and one of the wells. The advisory applied to people using the village water and not to any surrounding water systems or communities.

The department’s Drinking Water Bureau oversaw the village water system and made sure it tested negative for contamination.

Officials say the Village of Angel Fire water system will complete a required assessment even after lifting the boil water advisory. They must also regularly monitor the water to test for the presence of total coliform and E.coli.
