Ohkay Owingeh Utility Services Facts
Drinking water is a precious resource, but most people take it for granted. Many people assume that water will always come out of the kitchen tap and that it will always be wholesome. It is the job of the Ohkay Owingeh Utility Department to get the water from source to the consumer’s tap. This involves pumping water out of the ground and pumping water through over 14 miles of pipes. All of this costs money. Water in the ground may be free, but getting the water from the source to people’s homes and making sure that it is safe costs money. We deliver water right to your home and dispose of your sewage 24 hours a day. For use of the services, we will be sending you a monthly bill.
