Edmonson County Water District sends out notice

BROWNSVILLE, Ky. – If you live in Edmonson County, here are some things you need to know about your drinking water.

The Edmonson County Water District sent out a notice to customers saying their drinking water system violated a requirement.

Staff stress this is not an emergency, but feel that customers should have the right to know what is happening.

The water supply was tested, and cryptosporidium, a disease-causing creature, was found.

Currently, staff are reducing the clarity of the water, but that’s all that can be done.

“There’s nothing that you should do at this time. There’s no need to boil the water and you do not need to boil your water or take any corrective actions, but there was just some information that the EPA wanted us to advise people of,” Tony Sanders, manager of the Edmonson County Water District, says.
