Water project gets $4M boost

CLOVIS, N.M. (KRQE) – A project to bring drinking water to communities in eastern New Mexico will get a $4 million boost from the state.

The money will help complete the design for a water system that runs between Clovis, Portales and Cannon Air Force Base.

Part of the project might include tapping into Ute Lake, but critics question whether the water supply will be sustainable.

The lake has suffered from low levels for many years because of the persistent drought.
