LAS CRUCES- Las Cruces residents are advised that there is a water main line break on Telshor Boulevard and Mall Drive. A private contractor hit it while doing work in the area.
Water Resources crews are currently working on fixing the line as soon as possible. There may be a disturbance of water service for residences and businesses in the area due to the break. When the line is repaired, the residences and businesses may notice discolored water due to iron, manganese and calcium deposits.
