Water Outage Tonight, September 13, on Union Avenue and Harrelson Street 2018
Some Mesilla Park residents may experience a temporary water outage, possible low water pressure, and discolored water from 9 p.m. today, September 13, until midnight Friday, September 14, while City crews exercise valves in preparation for future tie-ins to water lines.
The affected areas will include Bowman Avenue to Harrelson Street, and College Avenue to Hanks Drive.
Area residents may notice discolored water due to iron and manganese. Although the water is safe to drink, City officials recommend waiting for water lines to clear before washing laundry.
The discoloration should disappear within 24-hours. If it does not, affected residents should flush outside faucets or cold-water faucets 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.
