Well #3 (at 64 Camino Manzano) has not been in regular use since March 2008 because the arsenic level (about 26-28 parts per billion, ppb) exceeds the federal and New Mexico limit of 10 ppb. The Cooperative is planning to build an arsenic treatment facility at the site so the well can be put back into service, providing needed water capacity.
As of January 24, 2021, here are some pages that have additional information.
