Source Water Protection

Louisville Water operates two water treatment plants with two sources. The Crescent Hill Water Treatment Plant treats water that is pumped from the Ohio River. The B.E. Payne Water Treatment Plant treats groundwater collected from the surrounding aquifer through a process called Riverbank Filtration. The first step in providing high-quality drinking water to our customers is protecting these natural resources. Louisville Water maintains a robust source water protection program to monitor and prevent contamination of these vital sources, and you can help in this protection.

Were happy to share our Source Water Assessment and Protection Plan and the Wellhead Protection plan that focuses on the area around the Riverbank Filtration project.
