Residents on Purple Sage Drive, near the intersection of Purple Sage Drive and Garden Sage Drive, will experience a water outage from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 15, 2020. Caliper Construction will complete a water main tie-in.
Adjacent areas also may be affected by the outage. If water on your street is scheduled to be turned off, city crews will post a door hanger notice a minimum of 24 hours in advance.
Once service is restored, residents may notice discolored water due to iron, manganese and calcium deposits. Although the water is safe to drink, city officials recommend waiting to wash laundry until after the water becomes clear.
The discoloration should disappear within 24 hours. If it does not, residents should flush all cold water and exterior faucets in the house for five minutes. If the discoloration remains, call the Las Cruces Utilities at 575/526-0500 for assistance.
For information, call the Public Works Department, Contracts Administration at 575/528-3098. The TTY number is 575/541-2182. For after-hour assistance, call Utility Dispatch at 575/526-0500.
