Expect Delays on NM Highway 4 Tomorrow and Possibly Longer?

New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT) crews are busy laying a new surface on most of the highway south of Cañon. Drivers are required to follow a pilot car for some of the way. A few drivers have reported waits today (9/1/2015) of up to 20 minutes at busy traffic times.

If you are heading out south, it is worth considering adding extra time to planned travel time while this work continues.

ALD Leak Detection and Water Shutoff

Monday September-14 8:00am to Wednesday September-16 6:00pm

American Leak Detection (ALD) will be coming to SLPPOA in order to leak test the system 1 water main. Now that all of the water meters are installed we have been able to determine the leakage rate of our 2 systems. System 2 is presently in very good condition with a leak rate between 4 and 5 percent. System 1 however seems to have a leak rate of as much as 60 percent. In order to test the water main it will be necessary to isolate all of the homes in system 1 by shutting off all the home meters beginning on Monday morning.

Update: Leak Testing Our Water System Date Changes

Once again the leak detection company has had to reschedule due to technical difficulties. They will now be here on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, September 14th, 15th and 16th. I'm sorry for any confusion this has caused.
