Residents on Doña Ana Road, from Richard Drive to 2105 Doña Ana Road, will experience a water outage from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 18, 2020. Morrow Enterprises, Inc., under contract with the City of Las Cruces, will be connecting the new Karen Avenue water line at Doña Ana Road.
Adjacent areas also may be affected. If water on your street is scheduled to be turned off, crews will post a door hanger notice at least 48 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, the City recommends waiting for the water to become clear before washing laundry.
The discoloration should disappear within 24 hours. If it does not, residents should flush all faucets in their house or business for five minutes. If the discoloration remains, call the City of Las Cruces 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.
