The Bernalillo County and the City of Albuquerque provide mosquito control within the AMAFCA boundary.  Click here for more information on Mosquito control from Bernalillo County.  AMAFCA uses natural mosquito control when possible.  Bat houses are placed near AMAFCA facilities to provide habitat for these mosquito eating animals.


For all other issues, here’s how to notify the appropriate agency:

  1. Look at the color-coded Maintenance Map, or the Interactive Facilities Map, to determine the name of the arroyo or channel, and who is responsible for that section of arroyo or channel.
    (Adobe Reader is needed to open Maintenance Map. Most computers come with this program already installed.)
