Due to inclement weather, a water outage on south Esperanza Street has been rescheduled. The water outage is now scheduled to occur from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 13, 2020. The City of Las Cruces Utilities will be replacing a broken 4-inch valve for the Valley View Park water meter.
Once water 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 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 for five minutes. If the discoloration remains, call the Las Cruces Utilities at 575/526-0500 for assistance.
