Kentucky American Water customers in Lexington and other Central Kentucky cities are dealing with outdoor watering restrictions. The water company says the drought is not the only problem. There's also a dwindling water supply.
A public meeting will be held to discuss plans for a new water pipeline that's stirring up controversy.
Kentucky American wants to build a water treatment plant on what's now pasture land straddling the Franklin-Owen County line. Kentucky American Water says the $160,000,000 proposal could handle any severe droughts that come along through 2030.
Tonight's meeting will be held at 5:00 at Dunbar High School in Lexington.
