SUNLAND PARK, New Mexico (KVIA) -- The "slimy water" saga in southern New Mexico may soon be over.

Doña Ana County announced Monday afternoon that the water advisory notice for Sunland Park and Santa Teresa, warning residents to not use any water for human consumption due to high PH levels, has been lifted for the Valencia Park and Villa Valencia subdivisions.

The county says the PH levels in those areas are testing "normally."

The Santa Teresa industrial area is still under the advisory however, as the PH levels are testing at around 9.5. CRRUA, or the Camino Real Regional Utility Authority says safe levels are around 7.5.

CRRUA says they're "optimistic" about the PH levels testing normally in that area as early as Tuesday.

Stay tuned both on-air and online at for the latest information as soon as we have it.
