FARMINGTON, N.M. (AP) - Over 6,400 Morningstar Water System users in northwestern New Mexico are under a boil advisory, days after a precautionary order was lifted.

The Farmington Daily Times reports (https://bit.ly/1t8RX7n) people on the Harvest Gold and Morningstar Water systems are advised to boil their water for at least five minutes before using it to drink, cook, bathe or wash dishes.

A New Mexico Environment Department statement says water that was cloudy with sediment prompted the advisory and could mean the presence of disease-causing organisms like E. coli.

AV Water operates the systems.

A San Juan County Office of Emergency Management official said on Friday that AV Water asked the office to notify customers of last week’s precautionary order, but that the office was not notified of the most recent advisory.
