Missouri Avenue businesses and residents, from Gladys Drive to south Telshor Boulevard, will experience a water outage from 6 a.m. until 10 a.m. Saturday Nov. 19, 2022.
The City of Las Cruces Water Department/MVH will install a 14-inch water valve for an upcoming project at the Missouri Booster Station.
Adjacent areas also may be affected and could include areas in City Council Districts 2 and 3.
When water 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 their house for five minutes. If the discoloration remains, call the City at 575/526-0500 for assistance. The TTY phone number is 575/541-2182.
