Funds approved for eastern NM water

QUAY COUNTY, N.M. (KRQE) – The federal government has approved $1.7 million to make sure communities in eastern New Mexico have access to drinking water.

The funds will go toward work at the Ute Reservoir – which will supply water to the communities of Clovis, Elida, Grady, Melrose, Portales and Texico.

The construction involves a pipeline from the Ute Lake to help transport water to the communities and will help reduce dependence on the Ogallala aquifer, which is unsustainable.
