QUESTA, N.M. — Just after midnight Sunday, Feb. 7, Village of Questa employees responded to a water main break on Cabresto Road. Public Works employees stayed on scene through the night working to locate the leak. Additional crew members responded at 8 a.m., Sunday and worked throughout the day to stop the leak and rejoin the pipe.
As temperatures fell, there were concerns that repressurizing the water through the newly repaired pipe could cause complications, however, village employees successfully repressurized the line without any issues, restoring water and water pressure to Questa residents off Cabresto, East Llano, and Calle Sin Salida.
In a separate and unrelated incident, a water leak was found at Alta Vista Elementary and Intermediate School in a building on school property Sunday afternoon. School officials tell us it was a minor elbow leak and took just over one hour to fix. This leak caused temporary loss of pressure to residents off Gonzales Rd. around 4 pm.
