Saturday Water Outage At Solano And Madrid

Oct 4, 2013

A scheduled water outage will take place from 12 a.m. to 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 5 at the intersection of north Solano Drive and east Madrid Avenue to allow Las Cruces Utilities (LCU) to complete a repair to the water main and valves located at the intersection. The repair is needed in advance of road pavement work that will take place in the area.

Residents may notice discolored water due to mineral deposits. Although the water is safe to drink, LCU recommends waiting to wash laundry until after the water becomes clear.

The discoloration should disappear within 24 hours. If 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. The TTY number is 575/541-2182.
