E. Coli Found in Quay County Drinking Water

Drinking water at a rest stop in Glenrio, New Mexico contains E.Coli.

The New Mexico Environmental Department found the bacteria in a water system that serves a rest stop in the Eastern part of the state.

Officials have warned travelers to boil water if they intend to use the water from the rest stop.

The state suggests boiling water for at least five minutes before using it.

It's suspected the water may have come in contact with sewage or animal waste and actions have been taken to disinfect the water system.
