Capitan Avenue residents, from Mountain Shadows Street to Walnut Street, will experience a water outage from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday, March 2, 2023.
Highland Enterprises, under a contract with the City of Las Cruces, will be tying in the new water system as part of the Bike/Pedestrian Improvements Project.
This work is being done in City Council District 3.
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, 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.
