Cortez Avenue Water Outage Planned Tuesday, Jan. 30,2018

Residences and businesses on Cortez Avenue, between Baca Lane and Jimmie Street and between Sierra Vista Avenue and Cortez Avenue, will experience a water outage from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 30.

Adjacent areas could also be affected. If water is scheduled to be turned off on any of the affected or nearby streets, crews will post a door-hanger notice at least 24 hours in advance of the outage.

When 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 for the water to 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 persists, call Las Cruces Utilities, at 575/526-0500, for assistance.
