Moriarty was without water for about four hours Monday, according to Mayor Ted Hart, after contractors digging a trench for a fiber optic line for Scoop ISP hit a town water line. The city will have to foot the bill, he said, because a marker for the water line wasn’t in the right place. The city is also holding a special meeting Thursday because a computer part for a water pump went out, meaning two pumps work automatically but a third has to be operated manually during peak demand, he said. “It needs to be fixed fast because we have schools on that line.”
