Bataan and Jornada 2018
Easement access will be closed tomorrow, April 3 and Wednesday, April 4 at the intersection of Bataan Memorial East and south Jornada Road.
The closure is necessary to allow City of Las Cruces Water Section crews to undergo Insta Valve training.
The affected areas will include the dirt access road at the intersection of Bataan Memorial East and south Jornada Road. Access to residences and businesses will be maintained. Motorists who want to avoid possible delays should seek an alternate route.
No disruption in water service is anticipated. But should there be an outage, residents and businesses in the affected area may notice discolored water due to iron and manganese deposits. Although the water is safe to drink, City officials recommend waiting for water lines to clear before washing laundry.
The discoloration should disappear within 24-hours. If it does not, outside and cold-water faucets should be flushed for five minutes. If the discoloration persists, call the City, at 575/526-0500, for assistance. The TTY number, for people who are hearing impaired, is 575/541-2182.
