In April 2008, HWEA completed the Lake Barkley Raw Water Transmission System which can transport as much as 25 MGD of raw water to Hopkinsville for treatment and purification.
In March 2012, we completed an expansion of the McKenzie T. Moss Water Treatment Plant in order to produce as much as 13.5 MGD of clean, safe, drinking water for our customers’ use.
Because of these projects, we are pleased that we have not had to issue any use restrictions however, due to the intense heat and dry conditions we would like to remind our customers to use water wisely during the summer months.
Here are some tips for conserving water:
Report any water leaks to HWEA’s main office at (270)-887-4246.
Please use only the water you need and honor the conservation techniques that will allow for unrestricted water use throughout the summer.
Don't run your sprinklers unless your yard needs it. Check plants before watering. If the soil is wet, wait another day or two before additional watering.
Direct your sprinklers so they do not water the street or your driveway.
Water your lawn at night or very early in the morning in order to reduce evaporation.
