Residents and business along Alameda Avenue from West Mountain Avenue to West Court Avenue, and from West Hadley Avenue from Armijo Street to Water Street, will experience a water outage between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Thursday May 26th. The outage is taking place for water main tie ins. Other surrounding areas may be affected by the outage with some water discoloration during the times listed.

Once service is restored the water may be discolored due to mineral deposits. Although the water is safe to drink, it is recommended waiting on washing laundry until the water becomes clear.

The water discoloration should disappear within 24 hours but if it does not, flush all faucets for five minutes. If the discoloration still does not go away call the city at 526-0500 for help.
