Reliable and safe water is vital to small communities. The American Society of Civil Engineers’ 2019 report card gave Kentucky a dispiriting C+ for drinking water and C- for wastewater treatment.
Cities like Greenville and Olive Hill are working to change that. Greenville’s plant was 30 years past its life expectancy with inaccurate meters. It started focusing on energy efficiency of utility systems.
These smart investments will save Greenville an average of $250,000 annually – significant savings for a small community.
Olive Hill is implementing energy savings by upgrading its water treatment plant to prevent water loss and potential crisis.
