As a result of new residential development, Sonoma Ranch Boulevard, from Engler Road to Sirocco Avenue, will experience a water outage from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday, March 16, 2021.
Renegade Construction, a limited liability company, will complete a water line lowering during the outage.
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 could notice discolored water due to iron, manganese and calcium deposits. Although the water is safe to drink, City officials recommend waiting for the water to clear before washing laundry.
The discoloration should disappear within 24 hours. If it does not, residents should flush all cold water and exterior faucets in their residence for five minutes. If the discoloration persists, call the Las Cruces Utilities at 575/526-0500 for assistance.
The water outage will occur in City Council District 5.
