Vaughn, NM (KDBC) — Water worries are finally coming to an end in the community of Vaughn, New Mexico. The small town of about 800 people has been without water for the past five days.
Officials say taps in the town ran dry last week because of a massive leak in the aging pipes. The New Mexico Department of Transportation had been trucking in water so that residents could flush their toilets.
The leak has finally been plugged and water service was restored on Monday.
