Gallup construction may mean discolored water

E-mail Print PDF
Construction scheduled for 515 Park Ave. in Gallup Feb. 25 and 26th, closed some water lines and shut down a pump station, causing the flow of water to change.

If you continue to experience the water issue, please call the Utility Dispatch at (505) 863-1200 or the Water Department at (505) 879-5722.
