University Estates and Mesilla Park Manor Water Lines to be Flushed 2018
Las Cruces Utilities will be flushing water lines in the University Estates and Mesilla Park Manor water systems between the hours of 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. starting Monday, March 12 and continuing through Wednesday, March 14.
The water lines will be flushed to remove iron and manganese that has accumulated.
The affected areas include Watson Lane, north to University Avenue, and State Highway 28, east to Harrelson Street.
Homes and businesses in the affected areas may notice discolored water due to flushing of the water lines. Although the water is safe to drink, City officials recommend waiting for the lines to clear before washing laundry.
The discoloration should disappear within 24 hours. If it does not, outside or cold-water faucets should be flushed for five minutes. If the discoloration remains, call the City at 575/526-0500 for assistance. The TTY number, for people who are hearing impaired, is 575/541-2182.
