Elida Water Safe

Folks in Elida New Mexico no longer have to boil their tap water before using it. 

The advisory to boil water is lifted after increased amounts of chlorine were put into the system to disinfect it.  

The state environment department had hissued the advisory last Saturday because of e-coli contamination in the drinking water.

Elida town clerk Sandra Monk says water samples gathered during the past week have tested within state limits for e.coli.
