Las Cruces Utilities today responded to a third
water line break on University Avenue east of El Paseo Road. While examining
the water line, it was determined that a portion is in premature failure and
will not likely last another year in service.
In a proactive measure, Las Cruces Utilities will be replacing approximately 1,300 feet of the water line between El Paseo and Knox Street. The project will begin in the next few days and all customers in the affected area will have water service during the water line replacement.
