Before You Dig

Regulations

New Mexico excavation law places certain responsibilities with the excavator for preventing damage to underground facilities. “Excavator” includes one person with a shovel as well as heavy equipment. The law provides for a one-call system that the excavator can use free of charge to arrange to have underground facilities located and marked before an excavation occurs.

When you call for a locate, it is your responsibility to ensure the information is properly recorded on the request.

To request a locate or to ask questions about what is required, contact New Mexico One Call Toll Free at 811 Or Submit Your Request Online At The New Mexico 811 Website.

Budget Plan

Bill "leveling", or "averaging", evens out your monthly bills, based on your 12 month history,  and keeps them at a constant rate throughout the year. Customers with less than a 9 month history will not see any benefit from enrolling in the plan.

When you are on the plan, you will see a minor fluctuation in the budget billing monthly, due to taxes, but that is usually less than a $5 dollar difference from month to month. 

A Budget Plan covers June through May of each year. We encourage you to enroll, or renew your plan, each May as your plan will not automatically renew. 

Payment Arrangements

We encourage you to visit or call immediately to make payment arrangements if you are experiencing a financial hardship. Services that are shut off for non-payment require full payment of the past due balance plus additional fees for re-connection of those services.
