BGMU sends crews to eastern Kentucky for restoration help

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – Bowling Green Municipal Utilities crews left this morning to provide restoration assistance in Letcher County following the eastern Kentucky floods.

A total of two crews are volunteering, including six water employees and one safety employee. BGMU will be assisting Letcher County Water and Sewer District over the next several days.

“We’re going in to aid them, assist them in getting their infrastructure back operational. There’s a lot of people out of water there: elderly, children and just families in general,” said Mike Gardner of BGMU.

Crews will be there for one week, but it’s possible they may send other crews if needed in the future.
