BernCo Provides Non-potable Water to Residents Outside of Gallup


The New Mexico State Emergency Operations Center requested that Bernalillo County send a water truck and a driver to aid residents who live outside of Gallup. The county delivered a 5,000-gallon tanker of non-potable water to Red Rock State Park near Gallup on Tuesday, May 5. The water will to be used for livestock and washing but is not drinkable for humans.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham has temporarily closed the city of Gallup, only allowing citizens to enter the city at this time. The water will be used by people who live outside the Gallup city limits and those on the Navajo Nation who usually go into the city to get water, but cannot do so at this time.

“Bernalillo County is always ready and willing to help our neighboring counties in time of need, so we are glad to help out,” says Bernalillo County Emergency Manager Richard Clark. “We will remain ready to send more water if the need arises."
