Las Cruces Utilites To Flush Water System
LAS CRUCES, NM — Las Cruces Utilities will conduct water system flushing Monday through Friday.
The affected areas will be Yale Drive and Stern Drive, Roberts Drive, Avenida de Mesilla and Valley Drive, along with Hoagland Road and North Valley Drive.
Residents in those areas 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 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. The TTY number is (575) 541-2182.
