In Trimble County, a $6,106 waterline extension project will make a drastic difference for five Kentucky households who will now have access to clean drinking water in their homes for the first time. Two of the homes utilize cisterns, while two other residences use two hand-dug wells. One of the residences that does not have water uses a creek for their water.

“I would like to thank the Governor and the General Assembly for appropriating these funds for rural drinking water and wastewater projects,” said Trimble County Judge/Executive Todd Pollock. “Small counties like Trimble County are doing their best to stay up to date, but with the rising costs of repairs it would be impossible without the funds. I would also like to thank the individuals from KIPDA, Jarrett Haley, Danielle Story and Justin Carter for their hard work to make this happen.”

The Governor also awarded a $909,500 Community Development Block Grant to the City of Bedford to support the Bedford Wastewater Improvements project. This project was also supported by CWP funds and will replace three water pump stations to better serve more than 300 customers.
