Hobbs Finds Unique Way to Conserve Water

HOBBS - The City of Hobbs has found a new way to conserve water and extend the life of the Ogalalla Aquifer.

The Hobbs utilities director tells us the city will pump treated water from their new wastewater treatment plant through abandoned petroleum lines and onto city properties like parks and the golf course.

The project has become a top priority for state water officials in New Mexico.

Right now, the city is applying for funding and then they'll send it out for bids. If all goes according to plan, Hobbs will conserve two billion gallons of water each year.
