09/14/2020

Lewisville residents may notice a different smell and taste of their drinking water due to a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) project to relocate water transmission lines to the City's Water Treatment plant.

This change is expected to start as early as Tuesday, Sept. 15 and run through Friday, Oct. 9. The potential taste and odor issues are aesthetic only and pose no health hazard.

The USACE project is at a stage where the new water mains will be connected to existing lines. This transition will temporarily prevent the Water Treatment Plant from using powder-activated carbon (PAC) in its treatment process, causing some customers to notice a change in the taste and/or odor of their drinking water.

If residents have questions or concerns, they can call the Lewisville Public Services Department at 972.219.3510.

Is there any information about the gas leak on Lake Park Rd? Apartment complexes in the area are being evacuated.
Big thanks to Denton County Emergency Services for stepping up and hosting a county wide winter weather planning meeting. Thanks to this we all are able to better plan for the winter season ahead.
Any updates on the roads here (besides wet)? Should we be concerned about ice?
