Running water returned to the homes and businesses of Magdalena on Thursday.

The village's well dried up and caved in earlier this month due to drought conditions. Gov. Susana Martinez told KOB Eyewitness News 4 that the well was not maintained for more than 45 years.

For weeks, the village relied on water from various agencies around the state.

But Thursday, crews repairing the well announced it was finally fixed.
