Farney Lane Area Water Scheduled Water Outage 2017

Residents on Crescent Drive south of Farney Lane and on Apollo Drive from Farney Lane to Crescent Drive will experience a water outage for four hours beginning at 10 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 8, for a new water main tie-in.

Adjacent areas also may be affected. 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 to wash laundry until after the water becomes clear.

The discoloration should disappear within 24 hours. If it does not, residents should flush all faucets in the house or business for five minutes. If the discoloration remains, call the City of Las Cruces at 526-0500 for assistance.
