The city of Las Vegas’ wastewater plant recently stopped accepting the contents of septic tanks. Officials say the plant is unable to handle the waste.
But they expect it to be able to do so in a few weeks, although the city is quick to point out that there are no guarantees.
The city has taken such waste from haulers for years from residents all over northeastern New Mexico. Now, the haulers must take it to facilities in Santa Fe and Pojoaque, which will likely increase the costs for owners of septic tanks.
