ROOSEVELT COUNY, N.M. (KFDA) - All non-essential County offices will be closed today, Nov. 3, due to a water shutdown in the city of Portales.

The water line break is in the area of Bryan Street.

County offices will reopen with normal business hours once water service is restored.

The City of Portales is working to repair the water leak and the County is on standby to help.

Portales Fire Department station 1 as well as C&S in the parking lot, will set up a distribution for non-portable water for the community.

The non-portable water will be limited to 5 gallons per household and they are asking that you bring your own container for the water.

More information will be given once it becomes available.
