Meeting held to inform Los Padillas residents about municipal water supply project

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Help is on the way for residents in Albuquerque’s South Valley that have been dealing with tainted water for years.

Many people in the area of Los Padillas are on shallow residential wells that have been contaminated by sewage and other sources.

A public water system has been put in, but hooking up to it is extremely expensive for homeowners.

Now the Water Authority has secured $1.7 million to help.

Tuesday’s meeting is scheduled to start at 6:30 p.m. for residents at the Los Padillas Community Center to provide more information on the project.
