(June 29th, 2018)

Due to the launch of the County's new Enterprise Resource Planning software, the bill payment option in the Utilities Los Alamos DPU App is currently inactive.  This downtime, which could take up to two weeks, is necessary for the conversion from our current utility billing system to Munis.  We apologize for any inconvenience and assure you we are working hard to complete this conversion as quickly and seamlessly as possible.  In the meantime, you can make payments online with your credit card through the Paymentus portal or over the phone. 

This does not affect any recurring electronic payments that you may have already set up, such as ACH payments.


You must have your Account # and Customer ID, which you may not already know. 

Contact the Customer Care Center to Get Your Account #  and Customer ID: or call 505-662-8333.
