2019 Annual Water Quality report released

Louisville Water continues to produce some of the best drinking water in the United States. Customers can see the 2019 testing and research results in the Annual Water Quality Report. Louisville Water met the strict health requirements established by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and maintains the long-standing tradition of excellent water quality.

Eastern Parkway Project complete
After four years of construction with dozens of lane closures and detours, Louisville Water announced the completion of the biggest water main replacement project in the company’s 160-year history. Called the “Eastern Parkway Project,” Louisville Water replaced 6.4 miles of water main that stretches along Eastern Parkway and Lexington Road, two of the city’s busiest areas. Lexington Road opened to the public from Grinstead Drive to Stilz Avenue on May 18.
Back in business soon? Flush the water lines!
As businesses start to reopen, Louisville Water has guidance for business owners to maintain good water quality inside their facilities. If a building has been empty or under used for months, it’s important to flush the water lines to move out the older water and bring in fresh water. This video shows you exactly what to do.
