Residents on Powder River Drive, from Arabela Drive to Cabin Creek Avenue, will experience a water outage from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday Nov. 23, 2021.
Caliper Construction will be tying in a new water main to the existing water system. Adjacent areas also may be affected.
If water on your street is scheduled to be turned off, City 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, City officials recommend waiting for the water to become clear before washing laundry.
The discoloration should disappear within 24 hours. If it does not, residents should flush all faucets in their house or business for five minutes. If the discoloration remains, call the City of Las Cruces at 575/526-0500 for assistance.
For information, call the Public Works Department/Contracts Administration at 575/528-3098. The TTY number is 575/541-2182. For after-hours assistance, call Utility Dispatch at 575/526-0500.
