Culinary Water

Lewiston City’s Water Department is responsible for delivering culinary water to the residents of Lewiston.  Lewiston’s Water Department makes every effort to provide clean, safe drinking water. Each year the water professionals spend several days training, leaning new techniques on maintaining the water system and keeping it safe from contaminates. Lewiston’s Water Operators are certified from the State of Utah’s Division of Drinking Water.

Low Water Pressure inside Your Home
Low water pressure may be the result of problems with your plumbing system or it may result from a problem in the pipeline serving your area. If you have low water pressure often, you may have debris in your pipes, water supply and other valves may not be open, or you may have leaks. To address low pressure problems inside your home, you should call a plumber and have your system checked. A sudden drop in water pressure may result from a water main leak or other malfunction. Typically, several homes in an area will be affected.

Sanitary Sewer

Lewiston City owns and maintains our Wastewater Treatment Facility. Lewiston City Public Works are responsible for the operation and maintenance of the City’s sewer collection system. This includes all the main sewer lines and lift stations found in the city. Properties within the Sewer District are connected to the collection system through a pipe known as a sewer lateral. The sewer lateral runs from the end of the structure to the city main sewer pipe in the street.  Property owners are responsible for the maintenance and installation of the sewer lateral from the house or business to the connection into the main sewer line. The main sewer lines collect the sewage and transport it to the Wastewater Treatment Plant located on the east end of the city.  Once at the plant the sewage is biologically broken down into solids and clean water. To prevent backups and buildups, routine operation of the jet cleaning equipment is performed. This operation maintains the system by using high-pressure water along with mechanical cutters to remove roots, rocks, grease and other such buildup. The portable lateral camera also helps identify problem areas and evaluate maintenance operations.

If a backup occurs
First take action to protect people and valuable property. You may call the city and we’ll check the main sewer. Any blockages found in the main lines will be promptly cleared. If the main line is not blocked, we recommend that you call a plumbing or sewer contractor to check your sewer lateral line. Maintenance and repair of the lateral serving the home or business is the responsibility of property owner/occupant. Regardless of the location of the blockage.


Back up Prevention
