Socorro offers help to Magdalena water users

........................................................................................................................................................................................

The city of Socorro will provide water for household use to Socorro County residents who rely on water from the village of Magdalena. For household use the water is free. Individuals or businesses that need a larger quantity of water should pay for it.

Residents should take their clean personal water jugs, containers and tanks to the city’s water distribution location. The city’s water system is potable but the city recommends users treat the water as nonpotable. The city will not be responsible for any sickness or injury related to the use and transportation of the water.

County residents need to register at Socorro City Hall, 111 School of Mines Road. Office hours are 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Registered individuals will be given directions to the water distribution location.
