Las Cruces Utilities will conduct a fire flow test on a fire hydrant in the area of Entrada del Sol and Walnut Avenue for two hours beginning at 10 p.m. Thursday, April 11. Affected areas will include Spruce Avenue south to Missouri Avenue and Solano Drive east to Walnut.
Businesses and residents 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 it does not, flush all faucets for five minutes. If the discoloration remains, call the Las Cruces Utilities at 575/526-0500 for assistance.
