Louisville Water offers unique opportunities for small businesses

Louisville Water delivers millions of gallons of drinking water daily to customers, and as we do this, we also create jobs for hundreds of large and small businesses. Louisville Water is launching a Small Business Equity (SBE) program to increase opportunities for small businesses.

We encourage small businesses to apply to be a qualified Louisville Water SBE program member. Louisville Water SBE program members will enjoy a few benefits:

  • Only Louisville Water SBE program members can bid on certain Louisville Water projects. This generally includes bidding contracts between $30,000 and $250,000.
  • The opportunity to work with Louisville Water on projects that are less than $30,000. In this case, bids are not required, and Louisville Water employees can work directly with SBE program members.
  • The opportunity to participate in large-scale projects. SBE program members may participate in all Louisville Water bid opportunities where they meet the bid requirements.

Beginning September 15, Louisville Water will offer virtual informational sessions for small businesses to learn more about the opportunities. For more information on the program, including FAQs, program application, bid notices, and how to sign up for the information sessions, visit our SBE program website.
