SANTA FE – Gov. Susana Martinez and Economic Development Secretary Jon Barela praised the formal filing of the deed with the Doña Ana County Clerk’s Office on Wednesday to create the Camino Real Regional Utility Authority (CRRUA) in Southern Dona Ana County. The utility authority will provide an independent utility for the provision of water and wastewater services along the U.S./Mexico Border in southern Doña Ana County.
“I am pleased that the final step in creating this utility authority has been taken,” Gov. Martinez said. “It is imperative that we have the Camino Real Regional Utility Authority in place to provide a predictable source of water for residents and businesses in the area. This will help to not only retain the companies we have in the region but recruit new companies to Santa Teresa and Sunland Park.”
CRRUA will oversee provisions of services and utility billing to thousands of customers within the City of Sunland Park and the Santa Teresa development, as well as to thousands more in the rapidly developing areas adjacent to the Santa Teresa Port of Entry.
“We are happy about the collaboration in the creation of CRRUA and look forward to the economic progress that will develop as a result of today’s action,” Secretary Barela added.
