Tashiro Drive will experience a water outage on Thursday, February 25, between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. for the installation of a water line lowering. The affected location will be Tashiro Drive from Motel Boulevard to 1200’ to the east. Services affected are limited to the Field of Dreams and Ball field Facilities.
Adjacent areas may 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.
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 to wash laundry until after the water becomes clear.
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 526-0500 for assistance.
The water outage will take place in City of Las Cruces Council District #4.
