EUNICE, N.M. (AP) - Officials in the southeastern New Mexico city of drought-stricken Eunice say a waterline break has spilled between one to two million gallons of water.

The Hobbs News-Sun reports (https://goo.gl/BKhTlu) that the break occurred Tuesday but workers were unable to reach the waterline Wednesday morning because of muddy grounds caused by rain.

The waterline runs from the city’s water fields near Hobbs to Eunice

Public works workers located the problem in a break in the line on ranch property north of Nadine.

The break comes on the heels of a water ordinance recently passed by the city council to conserve potable water supplies.
