LAS CRUCES- Las Cruces residents will experience a water outage on Tuesday.
The Outage is expected to last from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on July 12 and 13 on North Valley Drive from Bruins Lane to north of Isaacks Lane.
Mountain States Constructors, Inc. will be installing new waterline infrastructure as part of the New Mexico Department of Transportation’s Valley Drive Rehabilitation Project. Adjacent areas also may be affected. If water on your street is scheduled to be turned off, crews will post a door hanger notice a minimum of 24 hours in advance. Once service is restored, residents may notice discolored water due to iron, manganese and calcium deposits. Although the water is safe to drink, the City recommends 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 in the house or business for five minutes. If the discoloration remains, call the City of Las Cruces at 526-0500 for assistance.
