Yup ,we've been giving them tax credits for years to do these improvements, and this is more proof of their fraud. They took our money and ran, and now will get more of it, too! How many times do we have to get charged for the same thing?

Better give them all the money they ask for lest you get more "black floaties" in your water. Did they ever figure out what that stuff was? On second thought, I don't want to know.

We've already given them the money at least twice. I got an idea-why don't we take the money out of every pnm exec's pocket, and pay for it? Until it is done? Betcha they fix everything in one week, too!

Whatever the floaties were, their response made no sense when given so the mystery remains. Of course they were only in the local bottled water, however if they can make them for it, they can make them for tap water too<G>.

So the black floaties are still a mystery. What has not changed is that when someone flushes their toilet in Rio Rancho, that becomes Albuquerque's tap water in a few days. More or less the same thing here in Santa Fe with Espanola's sewage. But, hey, if the astronauts can drink their own pee, so can we Earthlings.

They gave all manner of nonsensical mumbo jumbo that in the end really said they had no idea what it was nor how it got there. I've no idea what it was but don't drink the city bottled water anyway. An occasional bottle of some other type when necessary and tap water work for me.

That's why in Abq we say "Flush twice, it's a long way to El Paso."<G>

Water where i live, both from Nm state, and local and county, states it's bad. We sell the most bottled water per capita in the state. It comes out brown often, and no one does anything about it, either.

Black floaties, is that a joke? Usually those are old water deposits building up. BTW, re-flushing isn't good if the water is tainted, it's same quality in as it is out!
