Fall Feels and Big Smiles at Walking Wednesday

Guests arrived to find a variety of Louisville Water trucks lined up along Reservoir Avenue. The little ones were thrilled to climb into the driver’s seat and check out everything.

Louisville Water crews pulled out all the stops; making sure they shined up the trucks, brought a stack of mini-hard hats, and oh yes, Halloween treats!

“We gotta put on a good show. We love the kids. We’re out here to make everybody happy, put a smile on the youngins’ faces. That’s what it’s all about,” said Eddie Bousson, a heavy equipment operator.

Smiles were contagious, whether it was a reservoir regular or a first-timer, young or old.

“The water company is always at her school, and I think these events are always a great experience for kids,” Morrison said. “She can play with her friends and learn things that maybe she doesn’t know, which always seems to happen when Louisville Water is around.”

That’s music to the ears of Louisville Pure Tap® Public Relations Specialist Kayla Hanak.

“When we started planning this open house, we knew we wanted to make a bigger splash than our regular Walking Wednesdays,” Hanak shared. “From giant trucks with our field crews to microscopic fun with scientists, helpful tips from customer service, or strolling around the reservoir and gatehouse to learn about Louisville Water’s rich history, there was truly something for everyone!”

Tapper loved meeting lots of new friends and the tasty fall snacks like popcorn, caramel apples, and apple cider, made with Pure Tap of course.

As we get ready to celebrate Louisville Water’s 163rd birthday on October 16, this fall open house is the icing on the cake!
