Residents in the following areas will experience a water outage on Thursday July 1, 2021, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. for the connection of a new water line to the existing water system. The areas affected are:

  • Solar Ridge Street: Mars Ave. to Sunridge Dr.
  • Sunridge Drive: Neptune Dr. to Highridge St.

     Adjacent areas also may be affected. 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. Once 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 to wash laundry until after the water becomes clear.

The discoloration should disappear within 24 hours. If it does not, residents should flush all faucets in the house or business for five minutes. If the discoloration remains, call the City of Las Cruces at 526-0500 for assistance.

This water outage is in City Council District No. 5.

For more information, contact the Public Works Department, Contracts Administration at 575/528-3098. The TTY number is 575/541-2182. For after-hour assistance, call Utility Dispatch at 575/526-0500.
