Mayor takes river-to-faucet tour

Mayor doing LouWater tourLouisville Mayor Craig Greenberg got an up-close look at the steps we take to make Louisville Pure Tap®. Members of our Executive Leadership Team and Louisville Water scientists recently gave the mayor and his staff a tour of our facilities that provided a look at our history, our record of water treatment innovations, and our current operations.

The state of Kentucky chartered Louisville Water in 1854 as a private company. The city purchased some of the original shares of stock and, by 1906, purchased the outstanding shares and became the sole owner. Today, our governance model is one-of-a-kind.

Thank you to all of Louisville Water’s team and scientists for the drastic measures you go through every hour of the day (365 days a year!) to ensure our city’s tap water is top notch!”
