Pettes Boulevard Planned Water Outage will be Thursday 2018
Residents and businesses along Pettes Boulevard, between Gasline Road and Mesa Drive, will experience a water outage between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 18.
Adjacent areas may also be affected by the outage. If water is scheduled to be turned off, crews will post a door hanger notice at least 24 hours in advance.
When service is restored, residents could 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, all faucets in the house should be flushed for five minutes. If the discoloration persists, call Las Cruces Utilities, at 575/526-0500 for assistance.
