Curry County Commission withdraws Curry County from ENMWA

CLOVIS (KSMX)- In a 3-2 vote, Curry County Commissioners decided to withdraw from the Eastern New Mexico Water authority and work with Grady and Melrose to have state legislation creating the authority amended to reflect their departures.

The Eastern New Mexico News reports that much of the morning portion of Tuesday’s meeting about 3 1/2 hours was dedicated to discussion with Clovis Mayor and Authority Chair David Lansford on the future water situation.

The authority is tasked with the creation and operation of the Eastern New Mexico Rural Water System, which would use reserved water at the Ute Reservoir in Quay County as a source of municipal water for authority entities throughout Curry and Roosevelt counties.
