EL PASO - As the city remains under mandatory water restriction, El Paso Water Utilities is holding a news conference at 1 p.m. to address the situation.

The public has been asked to refrain from washing cars, showering, using a dishwasher or washing machine, or doing anything else that uses a large amount of water.

Car washes and laundromats have been ordered to close.

"Seriously" - You're right on. There's kids and babies, hospitals and clinics, and how about the Fire Department trying to dowse a fire with low (or no) water pressure?? We DO need to take the Mayor and the Utilities to task, but after the crises please! The residents of El Paso will be asked to foot the bills for these boneheaded failures - we should insist that those responsible pay for their incompetence with their jobs.

are u crazy?? you need help seriously!!! you are not human!!

all this does is prove that the higher ups get overpaid to play the odds. the odds were that it wouldn't get that cold so they never prepared. there is insulation that can keep alaska going after all. equipment freeze- translation- we didn't insulate. archuleta and his water ranch for his son need to go. where is the water from that water ranch we paid for? refuse to pay more, refuse their rotten attitudes, the masses rule.

Everyone should turn there water on and let it run until Ed Archuleta is FIRIED! He has been on the Golden Pay plan with the city of El Paso for to long! He is the highest paid water manager in the State of Texas! El Paso wake up and quit being taken advantage of! TURN YOUR WATER ON!

omg what is wrong with you??? this isn't about getting someone fired?! I have two small children and I don't know about you but they need water to survive. So what do you say you stop shooting us in the foot and just follow the water restriction until they fix it. Then you can run around screaming who needs to be fired. Until then, dont punish the rest of us for your propaganda!
