SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - The New Mexico Environment Department’s Drinking Water Bureau has lifted a boil water advisory for a system in Santa Fe County.

An advisory was lifted Saturday after new samples from the Las Campanas system came back negative for E. coli bacteriological contamination.

The advisory was issued Thursday as well as one for the Vermejo Park Headquarters system in Raton.

Initially, the E. coli 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.

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