LEWISVILLE — Water customers in the Lewisville area may notice water pressure fluctuations or temporary discoloration at their faucets starting Wednesday, Oct. 18.

According to a release from the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County utilities department, the water tank at 210 Lewisville Clemmons Road will be taken out of service for routine maintenance and inspection. Work is expected to be completed by Friday, Oct. 20.

Tap water remains safe for drinking, cooking and bathing. It is fully treated and this work does not impact public health and safety. If water appears discolored, it is purely a matter of appearance and not a state or federal water quality violation. It is recommended that you refrain from washing laundry to avoid potential staining of light-colored material.

To minimize potential impact on customers, Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Utilities will flush water lines during this time. Customers can help WSFC Utilities monitor impact and prioritize response efforts by reporting pressure fluctuations or discolored water to CityLink at citylink@cityofws.org, call 336-727-8000 or use any of the methods on cityofws.org/citylink.
