Lohman Avenue, including south Walnut Street, will experience a water outage from 10 p.m. MST Saturday, March 11, 2023, to 3 a.m. MDT Sunday, March 12, 2023.
This outage will enable the City of Las Cruces Water Department/Water Line Maintenance to conduct a water line tie-in.
Adjacent areas also may be affected. This work will be done in City Council District 3.
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.
