Why is that fire hydrant running water?
When you see a fire hydrant running water, you might think someone opened it by accident or it's broken. But that might not be the case because sometimes Louisville Water is flushing the hydrant on purpose, and we will explain why.
Celebrating 21 years of pure tap perfection!

Join our celebration on May 9 at the kickoff event from 5 -7 p.m. at the Crescent Hill Reservoir and Gatehouse!

Hydrating runners, rain, shine or snow!

Not rain or snow could stop Louisville Water's 'Race Crew' these last few months. They have been hard at work readying the roads and setting up water stops for five different races all across the city, including the KDF Marathon and miniMarathon.
