LAS CRUCES, N.M. – La Union water officials said they had to shut down water service because of the heavy rains and floods.

Officials said the La Union community will be without water for an unspecified amount of time as workers fix problem areas.

Officials said they do not want the public to drink the water until the issues have been resolved.

The extent of the damage done to the water system is not known.

Drinking water will be available at the Administrative Office at 1870 Alvarez, La Union NM.

Friday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Saturday 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Sunday 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Monday and Tuesday 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Non-drinking water can be picked up at the La Union local fire station at any time. Individuals just have to bring their own containers.
