Users are no longer urged to boil water before drinking
SANDOVAL COUNTY – The New Mexico Environment Department’s (NMED) Drinking Water Bureau confirms that the Hummingbird Music Camp Water System has met the requirements to lift the boil water advisory that was issued on July 15, 2021.
Hummingbird Music Camp Water System was required to issue the advisory after bacteriological contamination (E. coli) was confirmed in drinking water in the water system. The advisory only applied to users served by the Hummingbird Music Camp Water System and did not extend to any of the other surrounding water systems or communities.
The Drinking Water Bureau provided compliance oversight to the Hummingbird Music Camp Water System. Subsequent samples collected from the water system were negative for bacteriological contamination. The Drinking Water Bureau will require Hummingbird Music Camp Water System to complete an assessment of the water system and maintain a regular monitoring schedule to test the distribution system for the presence of total coliform and E. coli.
