Residents at 2501 El Camino Real will experience a water outage from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday March 3, 2020. FSC Construction, LLC will be working on a damaged fire hydrant.
If water on your street is scheduled to be turned off, crews will post a door hanger notice a minimum of 48 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, the City recommends 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 residence or business for five minutes. If the discoloration remains, call the City of Las Cruces at 575/526-0500 for assistance.
