How Drops of Kindness Works:

Call a customer service associate at 502.583.6610 or 888.535.6262 (Toll Free) and choose the “make a payment” option. You will be connected  to an associate who will help you to find a bill payment option suitable for your individual situation. Please note that all calls are confidential. Solutions may include:

  • A payment plan for the outstanding balance 
  • Connection to partner agency funding

Customers can also directly connect with agencies that receive funding from the Louisville Water Foundation for bill assistance:

Neighbor helping neighbor

Help keep the water flowing for your neighbor by contributing a tax-deductible donation to Drops of Kindness. It’s simple, and every contribution — no matter the size — is valued during this challenging time.

Please also help us spread the word about Drops of Kindness to anyone you know who may benefit from the program. 

Unprecedented moment in our history

As COVID-19 entered our community in early 2020, we realized the critical importance water plays in reducing the spread of the virus. In March, Louisville Water became one of the first utilities across the U.S. to suspend turn offs for non-payment

We hope Drops of Kindness will help address financial burdens for customers in stressful situations.
