Louisville Water is rehabilitating a 130-year-old water main in your neighborhood that has been in use since the late 1800’s!

Louisville Water is committed to maintaining and rehabilitating our critical infrastructure to ensure we can deliver reliable, high-quality drinking water. Beginning in July 2024 and lasting for approximately 6 months, we will be rehabbing a large water main in your neighborhood.

    In order to minimize disruption to your neighborhood, we are using advanced construction technology to install a smaller pipe inside the larger main. This allows us to keep more streets open and keep the digging to a minimum. Also, you will not lose water during the construction process.

    Just like any large construction project, there will be lane closures and detours. We will provide regular updates on this webpage and our social media channels.

    If you have any questions, please contact our Project Engineer Mike Meyer at (502)214-4824 or via email at mjmeyer@louisvillewater.com.
