EUNICE, NEW MEXICO - Crews are working on the water lines in Eunice and the Mayor says it couldn't come at a better time.

During all the work, crews have encountered some big problems, forcing them to shut off the city's water supply several times.

The Mayor says the lines are so old that virtually any pressure to them is causing water main breaks and broken valves.

The entire project costs about two million dollars and will replace about 30 miles of the city's water lines.
