HOBBS, N.M. (KRQE) – Residents living about 20 miles north of Hobbs no longer need to boil their water before drinking, cooking, dishwashing and bathing.
A boil water advisory was issued Thursday after E. coli bacteria was detected in some samples from one of the system’s wells.
More than 13,000 residents using water from the Lovington Municipal Water Supply were affected.
Officials said Friday the well with the contaminated water has been physically disconnected from the drinking water supply.
