City of Asheville delays North Fork water line upgrade

Media update from the City of Asheville:

Plans to upgrade a 36 inch waterline at North Fork  have been delayed due to mechanical issues on Bee Tree Road. City staff are working with the community stakeholders to determine a future date for installation.

The first phase of the project, the installation of a 24 inch main is complete.  The City has received 9 calls in the Swannanoa area with reports of discolored water related to this project. Crews are flushing the system as needed to address customer concerns. At this time the discolored water is limited to a few homes and is not a system wide issue.
