Warren Water maintained service with no interruptions during and after the storms thanks to a team of dedicated water professionals along with various partners and utilities from the region.
Warren Water emergency response began at 2 a.m. on Saturday morning shutting down all pumping systems, monitoring storage, and determining areas where the biggest system impacts were located. The greatest challenges included shutting off service due to building destruction within residential/industrial areas and electrical service interruption to a large portion of the 100 pumping stations that serve the system.
We commend the strength of BGMU and WRECC in responding to natural disasters. Warren Water appreciates their support in returning service to our pumping stations, allowing for uninterrupted service.
“Our thoughts have been with our community,” stated John Dix, General Manager. “We have seen so much good within the last few days giving hope that we will push forward taking care of each other. Again, we appreciate BGMU and WRECC for their support in restoring power and for all their tireless hours in restoring power within Warren County. Compliments to our team for immediately responding to the needs, making assessments and safely working to ensure quality service with no interruptions.”
Warren Water extends appreciation to local neighbors at Oldham County Water District, Hardin County Water District No. 1, Caveland Environmental Authority, Glasgow Water Company and Kentucky Rural Water Association for providing support during this emergency. Thanks to our local electrical contractor, D&M Electrical for providing a generator and wiring assistance.
Warren Water is proud to serve the residents and businesses in Warren County and to be your local water utility.
