Este informe contiene informacion muy importunate sobre la calidad de su agua beber. Traduscalo o hable con alguien que lo entienda bien.

Is my water safe?


We are pleased to present this year’s Annual Water Quality Report (Consumer Confidence Report) as required by the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA). This report is designed to provide details about where your water comes from, what it contains, and how it compares to standards set by regulatory agencies. This report is a snapshot of last year’s water quality. We are committed to providing you with information because informed customers are our best allies.

Do I need to take special precautions?


Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immune-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbial contaminants are available from the Safe Water Drinking Hotline (800-426-4791).

Where does my water come from?


Your ground water comes from two well pumps, well #2 located at 516 Perch and well #3 located at 127 Michigan Dr.

Source water assessment and its availability


Source water assessment and sanitary survey should be available by this year 2020.

Why are there contaminants in my drinking water?


Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791). The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity:
microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, that may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife; inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally occurring or result from urban storm water runoff, industrial, or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming; pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban storm water runoff, and residential uses; organic Chemical Contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban storm water runoff, and septic systems; and radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities. In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, EPA prescribes regulations that limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water which must provide the same protection for public health.

How can I get involved?


To get more evolved with our drinking water. Join our cities meetings that are posted regularly at City Hall.

Description of Water Treatment Process


Your water is treated by disinfection. Disinfection involves the addition of chlorine or other disinfectant to kill dangerous bacteria and microorganisms that may be in the water. Disinfection is considered to be one of the major public health advances of the 20th century.

Water Conservation Tips

Did you know that the average U.S. household uses approximately 400 gallons of water per day or 100 gallons per person per day? Luckily, there are many low-cost and no-cost ways to conserve water. Small changes can make a big difference – try one today and soon it will become second nature.

  • Take short showers – a 5 minute shower uses 4 to 5 gallons of water compared to up to 50 gallons for a bath.
  • Shut off water while brushing your teeth, washing your hair and shaving and save up to 500 gallons a month.
  • Use a water-efficient showerhead. They’re inexpensive, easy to install, and can save you up to 750 gallons a month.
  • Run your clothes washer and dishwasher only when they are full. You can save up to 1,000 gallons a month.
  • Water plants only when necessary.
  • Fix leaky toilets and faucets. Faucet washers are inexpensive and take only a few minutes to replace. To check your toilet for a leak, place a few drops of food coloring in the tank and wait. If it seeps into the toilet bowl without flushing, you have a leak. Fixing it or replacing it with a new, more efficient model can save up to 1,000 gallons a month.
  • Adjust sprinklers so only your lawn is watered. Apply water only as fast as the soil can absorb it and during the cooler parts of the day to reduce evaporation.
  • Teach your kids about water conservation to ensure a future generation that uses water wisely. Make it a family effort to reduce next month’s water bill!
  • Visit www.epa.gov/watersense for more information.

Source Water Protection Tips

Protection of drinking water is everyone’s responsibility. You can help protect your community’s drinking water source in several ways:

  • Eliminate excess use of lawn and garden fertilizers and pesticides – they contain hazardous chemicals that can reach your drinking water source.
  • Pick up after your pets.
  • If you have your own septic system, properly maintain your system to reduce leaching to water sources or consider connecting to a public water system.
  • Dispose of chemicals properly; take used motor oil to a recycling center.
  • Volunteer in your community. Find a watershed or wellhead protection organization in your community and volunteer to help. If there are no active groups, consider starting one. Use EPA’s Adopt Your Watershed to locate groups in your community, or visit the Watershed Information Network’s How to Start a Watershed Team.
  • Organize a storm drain stenciling project with your local government or water supplier. Stencil a message next to the street drain reminding people “Dump No Waste – Drains to River” or “Protect Your Water.” Produce and distribute a flyer for households to remind residents that storm drains dump directly into your local water body.

Monitoring and reporting of compliance data violations


Chlorine reporting values, “health effects unknown”

Our water system recently violated a drinking water standard. Although this is not an emergency, as our customers, you have a right to know what happened, what you should do, and what we are doing to correct this situation.

*We are required to monitor our drinking water for specific contaminants on a regular basis. Results of regular monitoring are an indicator of whether or not our drinking water meets health standards. During the 4th quarter of 2018, we did not complete all monitoring and reporting requirements for disinfectant residuals, and therefore cannot be sure of the quality of your drinking water during that time. *

We are required to submit a report of the monthly disinfectant residuals on a quarterly basis to the New Mexico Environment Department, Drinking Water Bureau (NMED-DWB). We did not report disinfectant residuals monitored from the distribution system during the 4th quarter of 2018.

Special monitoring requirements violations


TTHM-1 Stage 2, did not monitor or sample for the June 2019

Our water system violated drinking water requirements over the past year. Even though these were not emergencies, as our customers, you have a right to know what happened and what we are doing (did) to correct these situations.

*We are required to monitor your drinking water for specific contaminants on a regular basis. Results of regular monitoring are an indicator of whether or not our drinking water meets health standards. During 2019 we did not complete all monitoring or testing for disinfection byproducts (Total Trihalomethanes and Haloacetic Acids) and therefore cannot be sure of the quality of your drinking water during that time. *

What should you do?

There is nothing you need to do. You do not need to boil your water or take other corrective actions. You may continue to drink the water. If a situation arises where the water is no longer safe to drink, you will be notified within 24 hours. 

What is being done?

Chlorine values for 2018 have been submitted; even though the time permitted has expired we have met the EPA standards for our quarterly chlorine residuals, and will continue to be more aware of our monitoring periods and operator errors for future monitoring.  Our violation as a Tier 3 will also give us a one year compliance that we will comply with once we sample during June of 2020 and have publically posted this report.

Additional Information for Lead


If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. City of Elephant Butte is responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at http://www.epa.gov/safewater/lead.


Water Quality Data Table

In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, EPA prescribes regulations which limit the amount of contaminants in water provided by public water systems. The table below lists all of the drinking water contaminants that we detected during the calendar year of this report. Although many more contaminants were tested, only those substances listed below were found in your water. All sources of drinking water contain some naturally occurring contaminants. At low levels, these substances are generally not harmful in our drinking water. Removing all contaminants would be extremely expensive, and in most cases, would not provide increased protection of public health. A few naturally occurring minerals may actually improve the taste of drinking water and have nutritional value at low levels. Unless otherwise noted, the data presented in this table is from testing done in the calendar year of the report. The EPA or the State requires us to monitor for certain contaminants less than once per year because the concentrations of these contaminants do not vary significantly from year to year, or the system is not considered vulnerable to this type of contamination. As such, some of our data, though representative, may be more than one year old. In this table you will find terms and abbreviations that might not be familiar to you. To help you better understand these terms, we have provided the definitions below the table.

Udall, Heinrich: Coronavirus Relief Bill Provides $377 Billion in Small Business Aid, Up to $10 Million Each for Businesses and Non-profits Up to 500 Employees

“Payment Protection” loans can be used for payroll, rent, and utilities and will be forgiven and converted to grants if workers are kept on payroll

WASHINGTON – March 29, 2020, U.S. Senators Tom Udall (D-N.M.) and Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.) are highlighting that the recently passed Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act includesmajor provisions to provide relief to small businesses and non-profits hurt by the coronavirus pandemic and its required public health responses. The bill includes $377 billion in small business aid – including up to $10 million in Payment Protection Program loans for each small business and non-profit up to 500 employees. The loans will be converted to grants so long as employers maintain their previous payroll through December 31, 2020.  The loans that can be forgiven will be implemented by the Small Business Administration’s (SBA) existing 7(a) program that operates through existing relationships with banks and credit unions. Additional relief options for small businesses and non-profits are also included in the CARES Act.

The CARES Act passed the Senate by a vote of 96-0. It is expected to pass the House soon and be signed into law by the president.

“Small business owners in New Mexico are facing a challenging road ahead while our state and nation respond to this very dangerous public health crisis. Our 150,000 small businesses in New Mexico are truly the heart of our economy –anchoring local communities, employing over 340,000 workers and supporting local economies. They are understandably worried not just about the health and safety of their employees but also their ability to keep their doors open and lights on,” said Udall. “That’s why I fought to ensure this relief package rightly puts small businesses and workers first. I am glad that the Senate came together to provide substantial funding that will help New Mexico’s small businesses and non-profits stay afloat and support their workers during this turbulent time. We’re all in this together, and we all have a part to play in helping stop this virus from overwhelming our health care system. I encourage New Mexico small businesses to take advantage of this relief, and businesses seeking assistance in doing so should contact my office. I promise to keep fighting for relief for our small business owners and non-profit leaders, their employees, and all New Mexicans during this trying time.” 

 “Small business owners across New Mexico are temporarily closing their doors and wondering if they will be able to reopen,” Heinrich said. “These grants and loans from the Small Business Administration can provide essential support that will help them stay afloat and keep their employees on payroll. I am committed to supporting New Mexico’s small business owners throughout this crisis and working with them to rebuild thriving local economies across our state when this is all over.” 

A breakdown of the small business provisions included in the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act and information on how to access newly available resources is below: 

Major Highlights: 

  • $10 billion for SBA Economic Injury Disaster Loans program emergency grants of up to $10,000 to provide immediate relief for small business and non-profits operating costs, to be disbursed within 3 days.
  • The plan would provide cash-flow assistance up to $10 million through 100 percent federally guaranteed loans to employers who maintain their payroll during this emergency. 
  • If employers maintain their payroll, the loans would be forgiven, which would help workers to remain employed and affected small businesses and our economy to quickly snap-back after the crisis. 
  • This proposal would be retroactive to February 15, 2020 and extend to December 31, 2020, to help bring workers who may have already been laid off back onto payrolls.·         
    • $17 billion for SBA to cover 6 months of payments for small businesses with existing SBA loans.·         
    • Makes rent, mortgage and utility costs eligible for SBA loan forgiveness.·         
    • Establishes robust worker protections attached to all federal loans for businesses.·         
    • Adds a retention tax credit for employers to encourage businesses to keep workers on payroll during the crisis. 
  • Support for Small Businesses: Authorizes SBA to provide additional financial awards to resource partners (Small Business Development Centers and Women’s Business Centers) to provide counseling, training, and education on SBA resources and business resiliency to small business owners impacted by COVID-19. 
  • Authorizes SBA to provide an association or association representing resource partners with grants to establish one online platform that consolidates resources and information available across multiple Federal agencies for small business concerns related to COVID–19; and a training program to educate Small Business Development Center, Women’s Business Center, Service Corps of Retired Executives, and Veteran’s Business Outreach Center counselors on the various federal resources available to ensure counselors are directing small businesses appropriately. 
  • This includes $562 million to help small businesses:
  • Ensures SBA has the resources to provide Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDL) to businesses that need financial support. This will help businesses keep their doors open and pay their employees.
  • $240 million for SBA Small Business Development Centers and Women’s Business Centers. The non-federal match for Women’s Business Centers would be waived for a period of three months. 
  • $10 million for Minority Business Development Agency’s Minority Business Centers 
  • $25 million for grants to associations representing resource partners.

  • Ensures SBA has the resources to provide Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDL) to businesses that need financial support. This will help businesses keep their doors open and pay their employees.
  • $240 million for SBA Small Business Development Centers and Women’s Business Centers. The non-federal match for Women’s Business Centers would be waived for a period of three months. 
  • $10 million for Minority Business Development Agency’s Minority Business Centers 
  • $25 million for grants to associations representing resource partners.
  • Loan Forgiveness: Establishes that borrowers shall be eligible for loan forgiveness equal to the amount spent by the borrower during an 8-week period after the origination date of the loan on:
    • Payroll costs, interest payment on any mortgage incurred prior to February 15, 2020, 
    • Payment of rent on any lease in force prior to February 15, 2020, 
    • Payment on any utility for which service began before February 15, 2020. 
    • Amounts forgiven may not exceed the principal amount of the loan. 
    • The amount forgiven will be reduced proportionally by any reduction in employees retained compared to the prior year and reduced by the reduction in pay of any employee beyond 25 percent of their prior year compensation. 
    • Borrowers which re-hire workers previously laid off will not be penalized for having a reduced payroll at the beginning of the period. 
    • Canceled indebtedness resulting from this section will not be included in the borrower’s taxable income.
  • Emergency Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) Grants: Establishes an Emergency Grant to allow an eligible entity who has applied for an EIDL loan to request an advance on that loan, of not more than $10,000, which the SBA must distribute within 3 days. 
    • That advance payment may be used for providing paid sick leave to employees, maintaining payroll, meeting increased costs to obtain materials, making rent or mortgage payments, and repaying obligations that cannot be met due to revenue losses. 
    • Establishes that applicant shall not be required to repay advance payments, even if subsequently denied for an EIDL loan. 
    • Eligible entities include startups, cooperatives, and ESOPs with fewer than 500 employees or any individual operating as a sole proprietor or an independent contractor.
    • Requires that for any SBA EIDL loans made in response to COVID-19 before December 31, 2020, the SBA shall waive any personal guarantee on advances and loans below $200,000, the requirement that an applicant needs to have been in business for the 1-year period before the disaster, and the credit elsewhere requirement. 
    • Allows SBA to offer EIDL loans based solely on an applicant’s credit score or an appropriate alternative method for determining applicant’s ability to repay.
  • Subsidy for Certain Loan Payments Defines an eligible loan as an existing 7(a) (including Community Advantage), 504, and microloan product: Allows SBA to encourage lenders to provide deferments and to extend the maturity of the loans to avoid balloon payments or any increases in debt for the borrower during the period of the national emergency declaration. Requires the SBA to pay the principal, interest, and any associated fees that are owed on the defined loans for a 6-month period starting on the next payment due.
