Utility regulators to hold hearings over Crouch Mesa water

Board to discuss adding fluoride to ABQ water

FARMINGTON, N.M. (AP) – State regulators are set to determine whether penalties should be assessed against a water supplier for how it conducted itself during a Farmington-area water crisis and months-long boil advisory.

The New Mexico Public Regulation Commission voted on Wednesday to hold a hearing on Oct. 12 to determine possible penalties for AV Water Co.

AV Water Co. customers in the Morningstar and Harvest Gold systems were issued a boil-water advisory in June. The Morningstar system had its advisory lifted earlier this month, but the Harvest Gold residents remain under a boil-water advisory.

Utility officials say they are working to restore water to Harvest Gold.

Since the commission will hold a hearing, the more than 7,000 affected customers will be able to provide testimony.
