Efforts to refill the Navajo Mountain community's water reserves were still under way Friday evening.Comment on this story
Heavy snow across the state has made the roadway to the water tanks dangerous. The last reading of the tanker showed the reserve at somewhere between four and five feet.
A grader was attempting to remove the snowpack and ice that had accumulated on the roadway, but removal has been slow. San Juan County will send a snow plow and sander to assist in clearing the pass.
The county also is assisting the Navajo Mountain Community with transporting water supplies to the tank. The groups are planning to send four 10-wheel water tenders and two semitrailer units with water supplies.
