Regulators create website for customers of 2 water systems

SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) – State environmental regulators have created a new website for thousands of customers of two Farmington-area water systems to get updates on months-long advisories to boil drinking water.

The state Environment Department says the website is for customers of the Morningstar and Harvest Gold water systems, both operated by the Animas Valley Land & Water Co.

The department issued emergency orders for Morningstar after a June 2 inspection found 28 deficiencies that the department considered significant.

Morningstar is seeking a connection with Farmington’s municipal water system to resolve the deficiencies.

The department says Harvest Gold is not under an emergency order but that could change if the system doesn’t address numerous deficiencies found in a June 2 inspection. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
