Water Outage Planned in Las Alturas Area on September 18th, 2018

Water service will be interrupted in the Las Alturas area from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. Tuesday, September 18, 2018. The outage is needed to allow Las Cruces Utilities to repair water infrastructure.

The affected area will include residences from Sotol Drive north to Senna Drive, between Sage Road and Tobosa Road.

Businesses and residents may notice discolored water due to iron, manganese and calcium deposits. Although the water is safe to drink, the City recommends waiting for water to become clear again before washing laundry.

The discoloration should disappear within 24 hours. If it does not, residents should flush all faucets in the house for five minutes. If the discoloration remains, call Las Cruces Utilities at 575/526-0500 for assistance. The TTY number, for people who are hearing impaired, is 575/541-2182.
