SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - The New Mexico Environment Department’s Drinking Water Bureau has issued boil water advisories for systems near Santa Fe and Raton.

The advisories were issued Thursday for the Las Campanas system and the Vermejo Park Headquarters system.

That was after E. coli bacteriological contamination was detected in repeat drinking water samples from each system.

Las Campanas is a community public water system that serves about 400 people some 10 miles west of Santa Fe.

Vermejo Park Headquarters Water System serves approximately 140 people and about 45 miles west of Raton.

Users are advised to boil the water for five minutes before drinking, cooking, dishwashing and bathing.
