Water Outage Planned on Valley Drive 2017

Residents and businesses on Valley Drive from Brown Road to Avenida de Mesilla, will experience a water outage beginning at 9 p.m. on Thursday June 1, until possibly 3 a.m. on June 2.

This outage is being conducted to allow the City of Las Cruces Water Section to install a 10” distribution valve. This will allow for a future water line tie in on Brown Road (already in progress) by Warren Construction. Staff is distributing door hangers to those expected to be affected.

Residents may notice discolored water due to iron and manganese. Although the water is safe to drink, City officials recommend waiting to wash laundry until after the water becomes clear.

The discoloration should disappear within 24-hours. If it does not, residents should flush outside and/or cold-water faucets in the house for five minutes. If the discoloration remains, call the City at 526-0500 for assistance.
