ABQ neighborhood to get city water

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Work started this week on another phase to help one of Bernalillo County’s oldest neighborhoods get city water.

Right now, residents in the Los Padillas neighborhood in the South Valley have well water.

Once the project is complete, 300 residents will be able to tap into city water. This will help out the fire department as well by allowing crews to fight fires with water from hydrants, instead of having to haul water.

The project will cost $1.3 million. It’s being paid for by federal, state and county funding, and will be completed by mid-August.
