Update for Talavera Mutual Water Users

From Karen Perez:

The tanks are not even close to full and Bernie is still hauling water.   Please do NOT use water for anything that is non-essential; some of us have not had water since Thursday and are not even able to flush toilets.  It will take several days to fill the tanks and balance the system with the well pumps.  These have only been pumping since Saturday afternoon and they cannot keep up.  Think carefully before you run a dishwater or do laundry – make that shower a little shorter than normal, and absolutely do NOT use any outside water for any reason.  And please remember to thank the members of the fire department, Bernie Digman and Daren Bloomquist especially, and the Dona Ana County Utilities Department, that have spent the last three days hauling water and fixing broken equipment.  Thanks so much!

    A couple of items. This apparently is the only site from where I can obtain any information.

    The property dicussed is 5092 Minniec.

    First, the family residing in my house was approached about water usage, even though they claim not to be using anything higher than normal. The evaporative coolers are pulling water, but no other use increases. Apparently the meter is spinning like it is out of control. They report no evidence of any leakage. How can this be verified and/or re-inspected/evaluated as I am unable to do so myself.

    Secondly, I have not been in the area for several years. Unable to sell the house, it has been leased out for the past two years. Prior to leaving, I tried to get a billing address switched. This was apparently to no avail as nothing has been received at the PO Box since then. I have been making approximation payments based on past normal usage, and not getting any indications from our leasee that there was an issue, I believed that all has been well. As the usage issue has caused a pressing concern and response, I would like to verify and/or clear any residual billing issues, including the invoice mailing address.

    Thank you
