Residents on Powder River Drive, from Cabin Creek Avenue to the north end, will experience a water outage from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday, June 10, 2020. Caliper Construction, as part of the Parkhill Estates 8A and 8B subdivision, will be tying into the existing water system.
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 until after the water becomes clear to wash laundry.
The discoloration should disappear within 24 hours. If it does not, residents should flush all cold water and exterior faucets in the house for five minutes. If the discoloration remains, call the Las Cruces Utilities at 575/526-0500 for assistance.
For more information, call the Public Works Department, Construction Management at 575/528-3098. The TTY number is 575/541-2182. For after-hours assistance, call Utility Dispatch at 575/526-0500.
