Portales asked to limit water usage

After an intense storm from Tuesday night, citizens of Portales are being asked to limit their water usage this Wednesday due to an electrical outage at the Black Water Well Field.  City staff are working to restore power to the well, but due to intense hail and wind from last night, the Well Field has lost power. Contingency plans are currently in affect, but citizens are asked by the city to reduce and refrain from using water for non-essential activities until electricity is restored at Black Water. A press release from Fire Chief Timothy Cathey will happen at 4:00 PM today, with updates on the situation.
