Colorado Avenue Water Outage 6/26/2017

Las Cruces Utilities will shut off water in the area of Colorado Avenue from Solano Drive to Mimbres Street and along Solano from Montana Avenue north to Colorado to repair a main line starting at 10 p.m. today. The procedure is scheduled to last approximately 4-6 hours.

Once service is restored, water could appear discolored due to naturally occurring iron and manganese. Although the water is safe to drink, the City recommends waiting to wash laundry until after the water becomes clear.

Any discoloration should disappear within 24 hours. If it does not, residents and businesses should flush all cold water faucets for five minutes. If discoloration remains, call the City of Las Cruces at 526-0500 for assistance.
