Canutillo, TX- Happier days are here for more than 240 residents in Canutillo.
For the first time ever this neighborhood now has a source of good clean water. That means safe drinking water doesn't have to come from a well or storage tank. Water to wash and clean is reliable and newly installed fire hydrants in case of emergencies. Residents have been dealing with the El Paso Water Utilities construction for more than a year and most have been using the new water supply for a few weeks now.
This $1.74 million dollar project happened with federal grants and loans at no cost to existing E.P.W.U. constomers. There are still an estimated 5-thousand people living in the county without suitable water in their homes.
