I have been in Albuquerque for over eleven years now and there was not a single time that there was a water problem. Welcome and once you come here it is a land of not only enchantment but also a land of entrapment. After your first year you are just enlightened and enchanted and you will never leave New Mexico again. It is kind of Shangrila, if you will. Good luck.

Air Force officials said it was too soon to know what the discovery might say about the contamination's spread. The military branch is in the midst of a major drilling campaign, installing 78 new wells and around the area where ground water is contaminated from a decades-old leak in a base jet fuel pipeline.

"Our goal is to define where it is and go after it,
