ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Kirtland Air Force Base hasn’t been paying its bills.
It owes more than half a million dollars to the Albuquerque-Bernalillo County Water Utility Authority.
Kirtland officials say there are complicated federal accounting processes and there was a mailing address mistake.
Most of the money is from sewage bills that haven’t been paid for several months.
Kirtland pumps most of its own water but the water utility authority disposes of the base’s sewage.
Kirtland officials say they will pay off their balance by the end of the month.
