Church Street Water Outage Will Be Tonight April 24th, 2018
Businesses on Church Street, between Amador Avenue and Lohman Avenue, will experience a water outage, possible low water pressure, or discolored water from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. today, April 24th.
City crews will exercise valves for a dry-run water outage for the future installation of fittings for a new fire line. Affected businesses may notice discolored water due to iron and manganese. 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, residents should flush outside faucets or cold-water faucets inside the business for five minutes. If the discoloration remains, call the City at 575/526-0500 for assistance. The TTY number, for people who are hearing impaired, is 575/541-2182.
