The Code of Ordinances for the Village of Ruidoso outlines the fees for all charges and rules regarding the services, billing and collection processes.  For the Online Municipal Code of Ordinances click here.  The Village bills in arrears for actual water/sewer usage.

  • Water and sewer bills have a minimum monthly charge for 0-3000 gallons
  • Usage in excess of 3000 gallons is charged based on a commodity schedule
  • Solid waste service is provided at a flat rate per month and includes solid waste, yard waste and recycling.


New Accounts/Deposit Information

Water service is never "disconnected" when a customer moves or sells a property. The account is transferred from one owner to another. If you are a new owner or renter of a property, please contact the department to have service set up in your name.

Deposits are required on all accounts. We are able to accept letters of credit in lieu of deposits. The deposit for a new account is due before the transfer date of new owner/renter.

Deposit Amounts

  • Commercial $300
  • Residential, Owner $150
  • Residential, Renter $250

**Deposits are refundable after 24 months of timely payments for residential accounts and 60 months for commercial accounts

Water & Sewer Taps

New taps for water and sewer service may be applied for at Village Hall. The cost for these will vary depending on the type of service and meter size required.
