Avoid Water Waste This Summer

Residents are watering more frequently in this extremely hot weather, and the Albuquerque Bernalillo County Water Utility Authority (ABCWUA) encourages efficient irrigation techniques to help avoid water waste.

  • Inspect your irrigation system frequently and address maintenance issues right away
  • Set your irrigation timer to change with the seasons
  • Run your irrigation system in short cycles, allowing water to penetrate the soil between cycles to prevent surface run-off
  • Install check valves at low points in the system to prevent water from draining out between cycles
  • Use drip irrigation instead of spray heads outside of lawn areas
  • Do not mix sprinkler system components from different manufacturers

NMDOT Starting Construction on I-25 Corridor in August

The New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT) will begin improving the Interstate 25 (I-25) corridor in Albuquerque between Comanche Road and Montgomery Boulevard, including the freeway, frontage roads, and interchanges. Major construction is scheduled to begin in August 2024 and is anticipated to continue until spring 2027. The project will improve safety and travel times for drivers now and in the future. Additionally, the aging bridges and pavements will be replaced, and barrier-separated shared-use paths will be added at the interchanges to improve safety for pedestrians and cyclists. To learn more about the improvements on this three-year project, please visit the project website at https://i25improved.com
