IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR DRINKING WATER
Aztec Domestic Water System Failed to Correct Significant Deficiencies Within Required Time Frame

Este informe contiene injormaci6n importante acerca de su agua potable. Haga que alguien lo traduzca para usted, o hable con algulen que lo entienda.

Our water system recently violated a drinking water requirement. Although this incident was not an emergency, as our customers, you have a right to know what happened and what we did (are doing) to correct this situation. Our water system has chlorine booster station on this tank to provide a sufficient residual to inactivate disease causing organisms.

A routine sanitary survey conducted on August 16, 2017, by the New Mexico Environment Department-Drinking Water Bureau (NMED DWB) found the bladder tank leaking and not secured from the elements.

Affected area: are those consumers living on the south side of Aztec, south of the Comfort Inn (Included), and Flora Vista.

006G - Storage tank not secured from the elements.

We were required to take action to correct these deficiencies. However, we failed to take this action by the deadline established by the NMED DWB.

What should I, (the consumer) do?
• There is nothing you need to do. You do not need to boil your water or take other corrective actions. However, if you have specific health concerns, consult your doctor.
• If you have a severely compromised immune system, have an infant, are pregnant, or are elderly, you may be at increased risk and should seek advice from your health care providers about drinking this water. General guidelines on ways to lessen the risk of infection by microbes are available from EPA's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.

What does this mean?
This is not an emergency. If it had been, you would have been notified within 24 hours.

*Inadequately treated water may contain disease-causing organisms. These organisms include bacteria, viruses, and parasites which can cause symptoms such as nausea, cramps, diarrhea, and associated headaches.•

These symptoms, however, are not caused only by organisms in drinking water, but also by other factors. If you experience any of these symptoms and they persist, you may want to seek medical advice.

What is being done?
The city Is in the process of getting funding to replace the tank. We anticipate resolving the problem within two years, based off the amount of funding we receive. Your patience is appreciated in this matter.
