FARMINGTON, N.M. (AP) – Farmington-area residents affected by a months-long water crisis are demanding more from the water supplier.
The Daily Times in Farmington reports that local activists protested Friday and released a list of demands.
The demands include getting new tanks in the Harvest Gold water system, bringing bottled water to customers’ homes and replacing AV Water Co. employees.
Attorney Germaine Chappelle, who represents AV Water, says a lot of the demands have been met and the company is working on granting others.
A boil-water advisory was issued in June to AV Water customers in the Morningstar and Harvest Gold systems.
The Morningstar system had its advisory lifted earlier this month.
Customers in the Harvest Gold subdivision say they are spending too much money on heating water and getting it bottled.
