Preparing for a Utility Outage



 Planned power outages are sometimes necessary to allow the Navajo Tribal Utility Authority (NTUA) to organize   and coordinate electric outages. We realize any power outage may cause some of our customers an inconvenience; however, we truly appreciate your patience and understanding during these times. We do routine upgrades to meet the safe reliable expectations of our customers. Sometimes these major repairs or maintenance to equipment are essential to regional power sources. To help during an outage, below are some tips and resources to help you prepare.



There are times when the water system must be shut-down. Navajo Tribal Utility Authority water crews routinely schedule upgrades to the water system through its operation and maintenance plans. Sometimes the Navajo Engineering Construction Authority will complete a construction project and request to tie into our water system. They will require us to shut off the water in your area. This what’s known as a planned outage and NTUA will try to provide sufficient notice to water customers affected.
