Residents and businesses along Picacho Avenue west of the Fairacres Post Office and East of S. Weinreich Road will experience a water outage between 1 and 5 p.m., Tuesday, March 15.
Adjacent areas also may be affected by the outage. If water on your street is scheduled to be turned off, 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, 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 for five minutes. If the discoloration remains, call the Las Cruces Utilities at 526-0500 for assistance
