Residents and businesses on Watson Lane, between south Main Street to approximately 600 feet west of south Main Street, will experience a water outage from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. Wednesday, July 6, 2022.
The water outage will enable Smith & Aguirre Construction to complete water line tie-ins as part of the Watson Lane water line connection permit.
Adjacent areas also may 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 for the water to become clear before washing laundry.
The discoloration should disappear within 24 hours. If it does not, residents should flush all faucets in their house for five minutes. If the discoloration remains, call the City at 575/526-0500 for assistance. The TTY phone number is 575/541-2182.
