LAS CRUCES — Farmers in the Las Cruces area won’t get their river water this week after all, because irrigation officials further postponed the season’s start date. Also, the Rio Grande near Las Cruces is drying up, for now, because El Paso and Mexico irrigators have stopped ordering water, an official said.
