How to Report Potholes
If you have a pothole on your street, report it to the Public Works Department for repair.

• Submit a pothole location using the online form below or
• Call Public Works, Utility Maintenance Dispatcher at (575) 439-4240
While we use preventive maintenance to avoid severe pothole problems, potholes usually develop in older pavements as water fill cracks in the pavement and expand and contracts as it freezes and thaws. Heavy traffic also causes fatigue in pavement weakened by age and frost action.
We regularly check for surface problems on streets with older pavement to keep ahead of any problems. We welcome calls from citizens to report situations in their neighborhoods or on their traffic routes. If you notice a pothole in a street or alley, please report it right away.
