Residents within the current Water & Sewer service boundary can now
petition for service
During their meeting on May 6, 2021, the
Forsyth County Board of Commissioners approved a new waterline extension policy
that outlines how residents can apply for County water service in areas currently
not served by the Forsyth County Department of Water & Sewer (FCDWS). The
policy can be found by clicking here.
This policy establishes the parameters
for addressing ad hoc petitions for waterline extensions that are not specified
in the FCDWS capital improvement plan.
Residents within the FCDWS service
boundary seeking to have County water services provided can request services by
filling out a petition for a County waterline found on the FCDWS webpage. To determine
if a residence is currently in the County’s water service area, click here.
All petitions for waterline extension
will be evaluated on an annual basis. Exceptions may be granted based on
special circumstances as determined by the FCDWS and approved by the Forsyth
County Board of Commissioners. The
FCDWS will review each petition to estimate the cost and financial viability of
the proposed waterline extension. A recommendation to approve or deny each
petition will be made to the Board of Commissioners annually based on the
business case and priority of the petition. Full details, including the criteria
for petition prioritization, can be found in the waterline extension policy.
