Customer Services

We Value Our Customers, Our Clients, & Our Communities

To best serve our customers, we strive each and every day to keep current information on-hand and readily available. We post informative newsletters at the turn of every season (spring, summer, fall, winter).

Neighbors Helping Neighbors Fund

Big Mesa customers who are facing a financial hardship can receive a grant to help pay for part of or all of their past due water bill. It is a community service program created to receive voluntary contributions from our Big Mesa members. The customer must be facing hardship due to an emergency or unforeseen drop in income that has occurred within the last six months and must be a permanent and not a seasonal resident. This fund is administered by a committee made up of two American Legion Auxiliary members and three Big Mesa members that are in good standing. The American Legion Auxiliary will issue the grant once all committee members are in agreement of the customer in need.

Water Line Identification
Call Before You Dig

In order to ensure all digging projects within our service areas progress smoothly and without incident, we've submitted an application with the State of New Mexico to incorporate a much-needed program in "8-11 ~ Call Before You Dig". This allows one of our licensed staff to identify any of our water lines and assist with our Member's excavation operation. Be sure to reach out to us via email by phone, or you can contact them directly by calling 811
