RIO RANCHO, N.M. (AP) — Rio Rancho officials will be looking to a new bulk water filling station to cut down on water thefts from hydrants.
The filling station is also aimed at providing a more convenient source of water for residents who live in neighborhoods without water lines and regular service.
The filling station will open Monday. The cost: $10 for 1,000 gallons.
Users must have an account with the city's utility division, but there are no residency restrictions to use the station.
The station cost about $192,000 to build. It was funded from the city's utilities operations fund, environmental gross receipts tax, water impact fees and utility bond proceeds.
