City’s alternative water sources being gauged

  • The Kentucky Standard

Growing pains frequently accompany growth spurts, and Bardstown — whose population increased by about 5,000 in the last 20 years to 11,700 — is experiencing some discomfort in its water supply. The situation isn’t yet dire, but it could be in a few decades if city officials don’t act now.

Bardstown City Council is heeding the warning, and at its working session Tuesday, engineers with Kenvirons discussed preliminary results of a raw water study being conducted to identify alternative water sources.

Is the Beech Fork still a possible option as an alternative water source?
