LA UNION, N.M. - La Union residents now have water available to them. 

Flood waters that demolished roadways and left people stranded in their homes forced La Union Water Association officials to shut off water to the village.

The community has not had running water since Thursday, but Wednesday morning county officials delivered the good news.

Repairs are still being made, but officials say that the water is safe to drink.

Residents can expect to have low water pressure at times, said water officials.
