Columbia Adair Utility District Manager Lenny Stone said he was notified by the Division of Water Friday of a problem in Taylor County. CAUD buys water from Campbellsville for customers from 7973 Knifley Rd. to the Crossroads and all side roads in between. From the Crossroads to Eastridge Cemetery Road and all side roads in between and all of Elkhorn Road. Then from the Crossroads down to Roley/Yuma Road and Roley area and Dry Creek.
Stone said customers may experience some low water pressure but they will not be under a lengthy advisory. Stone said a Division of Water official told him the problem in Campbellsville could take up to two months to resolve. There is also concern of major breakage, which would leave those customers without any water at all.
Below is a report from the Central Kentucky News Journal, which they posted on their Facebook page Friday afternoon.
While Josh Pedigo, director of Campbellsville’s public works department, stated in a press call earlier today that there is no evidence of contamination in the treated water supply as a result of the leak, KAR statutes require the advisory be put in place regardless as a proactive measure.
