May 12, 2023 | Demolition Begins

Demolition of the City's high reservoir roof structure is currently in progress. Once the demolition is completed, the site cleanup will commence, followed by the construction of the concrete reservoir walls. We understand the importance of keeping our community informed, and we will make sure to provide updates on the progress of this project. 

Please note that irrigation restrictions remain in effect for the City of Lewiston water customers within the service area identified on the service area map, which can be accessed at 

With the temperatures rising, the demand for irrigation water is also on the rise. City staff is keeping a close eye on the water system and how it is functioning as the temperatures continue to climb. Based on how the system continues to run as temperatures rise, modifications may be made to irrigation restrictions.
