Downtown Water Outage 9-18-2017
A four-hour water outage is planned for a section of Downtown Las Cruces beginning at 10 p.m. Monday, Sept. 18. The outage will impact three businesses; The New America School, the Music Box, and Firestone on Main Street. Adjacent areas could also be affected.
Once service is restored, residents could 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 for five minutes. If the discoloration remains, call Las Cruces Utilities at 575/526-0500 for assistance.
