Residents on Stern Drive, from Boutz Road to Carreon Place, will experience a water outage from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday May 13, 2021.
Diamond Construction, Inc. under contract with the City of Las Cruces, will be connecting a new water line to the existing water system.
Adjacent areas may also be affected. If water on your street is scheduled to be turned off, crews will post a door hanger notice a minimum of 48 hours in advance.
Once 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 water lines to become clear before washing laundry.
Water discoloration should disappear within 24 hours. If it does not, residents should flush all faucets in their residence or business for five minutes. If the discoloration remains, call the City of Las Cruces at 575/526-0500 for assistance.
The water outage is in City Council District 2.
