Las Crucens may find their water looking a little funny Wednesday, according to Las Cruces Utilities.

The company plans to put Well 70 back on line beginning at 10 p.m. Wednesday, and utility leaders say the discoloration may be due to iron, manganese and calcium deposits.

Officials say the water is safe to drink, but recommend waiting to wash laundry until after the water clears, which is expected within 24 hours afterwards.

If your water is still discolored after that time, Las Cruces Utilities is asking you call (575) 526-0500.
