Aztec buys new pump to take water from Animas River

Last week, Aztec commissioners approved the purchase of a new submersible pump to help draw water to be treated for drinking from the Animas River at the city's sole intake canal across the river from the Aztec Ruins National Monument. The $79,000 pump will be supplied by Alpha Southwest, in Albuquerque, though the delivery time listed on the bid is 24 to 26 weeks, which can't guarantee arrival even by Christmas, the time of year when the city relies more heavily on the river to supply its treatment plant with raw water.
