Well I would say that the New Mexico Environment Department has done a real disservice to the folks that live up here too - as the "boil advisory" does not pertain to the community of Sunspot either.

This is a good case of putting out false information to the public.

Well, another poorly worded and researched article. The Silver Cloud subdivision is not included in this boil water advisory. If any tests came back positive there would have been a boil water ORDER, not an urging by the NMED. The NMED was vague, but the journalist was lazy.

What is of great concern is how the paper could not get a quick and accurate answer from NMED. That would not have happened in the old days. Notice how most of the departments these days have a maze of answering machines to go thru only to get a recording saying the person is "unavailable."
You want to fix something that needs fixing Martinez, fix this!

Yeah, let's get a committee. They're sure to fix it--NOT
