Water Outage Planned Tomorrow Night, September 13, on Court Avenue 2018
A water outage is planned from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. tomorrow, Thursday, September 13, on Court Avenue, between Main Street and Water Street.
Adjacent areas could also be affected by the outage. City crews will post a door hangar notice at homes at least 24 hours in advance if water is going to be turned off.
When 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 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 the house for five minutes. If the discoloration persists, call Las Cruces Utilities, at 575/526-0500, for assistance. The TTY number, for people who are hearing impaired, is 575/541-2182.
