Las Cruces Water Outage Near Madrid And Main Wednesday

Las Cruces – Some Las Cruces residences and businesses in the vicinity of the Triangle Trade Shopping Center, 2107 N. Main St. near the intersection of Madrid Avenue and N. Main St., will experience a water outage on Wednesday, December 29th from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. while Burn Construction Company ties in a new water main.

Adjacent areas may also be impacted. 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 or business for five minutes. If the discoloration remains, call the City of Las Cruces at 575/526-0500 for assistance.

For more information contact the City of Las Cruces Utilities at 575/528-3512. The TTY number is 575/528-3690.
