Please Note the Following:

  • The reason for the water shut-off or turn-on shall be detailed and descriptive.
  • Water shut-offs may have to be scheduled at night or on weekends to accommodate water customers and traffic flow.
  • A map with street names and the project location will have to be submitted and attached to the request. Please note that there is a 1MB maximum file size limit for the attachment. The following link to the City GIS may be used as a tool to create street map attachments: http://www.cabq.gov/gis/address.php.
  • Water shutoffs involving Transmission, Master Plan, Collector, Well Collector, or San Juan Chama lines may not be permitted during the months of May through September due to the demand on the system. Construction schedules will need to be coordinated with the Water Authority, Plant & Field Divisions when these types of waterlines are impacted. All subsurface work around San Juan Chama transmission lines require special procedures outlined in the Water Authority Administrative Instruction No. 9.
  • If the water shut-off or turn-on cannot be done on the requested date, the Field Supervisor will notify the CONTRACTOR as soon as possible. The Water Authority shall have the authority to cancel scheduled water shut-offs if the Field Supervisor determines that:
  1. CONTRACTOR is not ready to start work and completion of the work will extend beyond the requested time;
  2. CONTRACTOR is lacking the necessary equipment, parts, or materials on the job site;
  3. Any existing condition giving just cause to show that the scheduled water shut-off will extend beyond the requested time.
  4. Field operating conditions have changed which may impact the number of customers or fire hydrants in the shut-off or turn-on request.
