JAL, N.M. - Jal's water has been named the best drinking water in New Mexico.
The city beat out 26 other entries for that title last week at the Annual New Mexico Rural Water Association Conference.
This is the first time that Jal has entered the competition.
According to the Association's Executive Director, it's an impressive feat for the city because of the aged water system.
Jal officials will head to Washington next year to compete on the national level.
