Did you Receive A CORRECTED BILL?

 

Not to worry!!  If you have already paid this month’s bill, the small adjusted tax amount does NOT need to be paid separately.

The small adjusted tax amount (the difference between the first bill and the second bill) can be left unpaid for this month and it will roll over to your next month’s bill.


No separate payments necessary!


As always, we appreciate your patience and understanding and apologize for the inconvenience.

Are You Ready To Chase Down Leaks?

 

Household leaks can waste thousands of gallons of water every year. The Bernalillo County Water Conservation Program encourages all residents to hunt down the drips in their households.  Common leaks found in homes are worn toilet flappers, dripping faucets and outdoor irrigation systems.

Leaks can run, but they can’t hide! As part of this “Fix a Leak” campaign, all Bernalillo County community centers will have FREE toilet leak dye tablets available for the public to take home and use.

Please visit our website, www.bernco.gov/FixLeaks/, for more information and tips on how to identify and fix leaks.  Save valuable water and money all year long!

Bernalillo County would also like to remind all residents that the Water Conservation Ordinance will be in effect starting April 1st – Oct. 31st.  Water restrictions include no outside sprinkler watering between the hours of 11 a.m. – 7 p.m., the hottest part of the day.

 

 

* Dye tablets are also available at the Sandia Heights Services office

Currently Bernalillo Country offers two water conservation incentive programs available to Sandia Heights residence:


High Efficiency Toilet Retrofit Program – To participate in the High-Efficiency-Toilet Retrofit program, residents must receive a home water use survey. The home water use survey is conducted by Bernalillo County staff and includes verification of toilet eligibility, home leak analysis, estimation of current water use, and installation of low-flow shower heads and faucet aerators. Existing toilets must be 3.5 or 5 gallon per flush toilet manufactured before 1994. If it is determined that your property has toilets that are eligible to be replaced, a plumber will be selected to install up to two 1.28 gallons per flush High Efficiency Toilets.

Sandia Heights currently has 325 participants in this program!


Rain Barrel Program – Property owners in unincorporated areas who are not customers of the Albuquerque Bernalillo County Water Utility Authority (ABCWUA) may qualify to receive one rain barrel per occupied address.  To participate and qualify for the Rain Barrel Program, sign up for a Home Water Conservation Survey.  Bernalillo County will verify that there is a way for the rain barrel to be utilized on the site and you will pay only $40 for a 100 gallon rain barrel (the rain barrel retails for over $200!).   Bernalillo County will also provide water saving tips for the outdoors and can provide low-flow aerators and shower heads for inside your home.

Sandia Heights currently has 237 participants in this program!


For applications and more information call Bernalillo County at 848-1500 or visit their website at www.bernco.gov/water.

Sandia Heights Services is proud to present Tom Teachout with the 2014 Good Samaritan Award.  Tom has served as Secretary/Treasurer for the Primrose Pointe HOA for the last five years.  He has been instrumental in many of the great road improvements in Primrose such as the installation of speed humps, the recently completed fog sealant and the repaving of the path off Lowell, between Oakland and Anaheim.  This path is enjoyed by Primrose residents, those out for some exercise and also by the children attending school nearby. Tom is also actively working with Bernalillo County to get Fire Station #5 (just West of Lowell, South of Paseo) direct access to Paseo Del Norte. Currently the trucks must travel either West to Browning or East to Lowell for access to Paseo, extending their response time by 2-3 minutes.
