Pursuant to Section 8-2-6 of the Gallup Municipal Code, the City Manager imposed the following water restrictions starting June 7:

  1. Outdoor irrigation at city facilities is prohibited until further notice
  2. Outdoor irrigation and outdoor water use by residents and commercial businesses is prohibited until further notice
  3. Impose a temporary moratorium on any or all new developments, including lawn and garden installations
  4. The washing of cars, trucks, trailers, boats, airplanes, or other mobile equipment is prohibited; unless the washing of vehicles/mobile equipment is done at commercial car washes

Furthermore, the residents of Gallup are asked to conserve water by any reasonable means until further notice.

The purpose of this declaration is due to a major line break of a 30-inch water main, which is the main water supply for Gallup.

Public notice will be given when this declaration is terminated.
