[ARCHIVED] Court Avenue, Armijo Street Water Outage Planned


Residents on Court Avenue, between Alameda Boulevard and Reymond Street, and Armijo Street residents, between Las Cruces Avenue and Mountain Avenue, will experience a water outage between the hours of 9 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 17, 2019 and 1 a.m. Friday, Oct. 18, 2019 while Morrow Enterprises completes a water main tie-in.


Adjacent areas might also be affected by the outage.  If water on your street is scheduled to be turned off, city crews will post a door-hanger notice a minimum of 24 hours in advance.


When 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 until the water becomes 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.
