Sunny Acres Drive and Jimmie Street to Experience Water Outage on March 21st, 2018
Residents and businesses on portions of Sunny Acres Drive and Jimmie Street will experience a water outage from 10 p.m. until 2 a.m. Wednesday, March 21.
The affected areas will include: Sunny Acres Drive, south of Peachtree Hills Road, and Jimmie Street, between Central Road and Mesa Drive.
Adjacent areas might also be affected by the outage. If water is scheduled to be turned off, City crews will post a door hanger notice at least 24 hours before the water is turned off.
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 it 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. The TTY number, for people who are hearing impaired, is 575/541-2182.
