San Andres Estates Water 2018
Las Cruces Utilities will be flushing water lines in the San Andres Estates Water System between the hours of 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. starting tomorrow, March 20 and continuing through Thursday, March 22.
The affected areas include: Valley Drive, from the Doña Ana Drain to Swartz Road; Swartz Road east to the railroad tracks; and from the railroad tracks west to San Andres Drive.
The water lines will be flushed to remove iron and manganese that has accumulated in the water system. Residences and businesses in the affected areas may experience low water pressure and discolored water during the line flushing times.
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 and cold-water faucets in their house 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.
