City of Rock Hill utility employees plan to drain some water from the water tank on Laurel Street on Sunday around 5 p.m.
The downtown water tank could release some water into the street, officials said on Saturday, but residents should not be concerned.
The city plans to demolish the water tank by next year after a new 750,000-gallon tank is built nearby. The new tank will serve anticipated growth nearby in the "Knowledge Park" area of Rock Hill.
Knowledge Park is a redevelopment plan set to transform old textile buildings and properties between downtown Rock Hill and Winthrop University.
Increased water tank capacity and upgraded utility lines in the downtown area are necessary, officials have said, to prepare the textile corridor for commercial and residential uses.
Rock Hill City Council members are expected to approve contracts for the new water tank construction in the coming months.
