Residents on Tobosa Road to Sage Road and from Sotol Drive to Senna Drive will experience a water outage from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, March 3, 2023.
The City of Las Cruces Water Production will be isolating main lines using distribution valves in the area, so that existing water lines can be replaced for the Las Alturas Booster Station.
The affected areas will include:
- Tobosa Road to Sage Road.
- Sotol Drive to Senna Drive.
Adjacent areas may also be affected. Tobosa Road and Sotol Drive are in City Council District 2.
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.
