Las Cruces Utilities will conduct booster station testing in the area of Airport Road and Crawford Boulevard between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. beginning Tuesday, January 26, and concluding Friday, January 29. A night test will be performed on Thursday, January 28, for two hours beginning at 10 p.m.

Businesses 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, businesses should flush all cold water faucets in the business for five minutes. If the discoloration remains, call the Las Cruces Utilities at 526-0500 for assistance.
