Water Outage Downtown 2017

Residents and businesses in the area of Griggs Avenue from Alameda Boulevard to Mesquite Street, south to Amador Avenue, will experience a water outage beginning at 10 p.m. Monday, July 17. Adjacent areas also may be affected by the outage.

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 faucets in the house for five minutes. If the discoloration remains, call the Las Cruces Utilities at 526-0500 for assistance.
