Water Line Repairs Hit Snag

A few set backs for Hazard water customers.

City Manager Paul Feltner says customers in the Buckhorn area and those near the Perry County Industrial Park are without water.

Feltner says they hope to build the water supply in those areas back up overnight.

The cold weather is also causing a few problems.

Workers repaired some small leaks, but so far, no major breaks.

The boil water advisory and conservation request are still in effect.

    First I would like to say thank you to Greg for standing up for our city workers. Second I would like to say how sorry I am for those of you who still don't have water, I know its extremely hard having to go without it. I'm married to one those city workers, I have watched him put in several 16, 18, and 20 hour days, last weekend he worked 25 hours straight before coming home. Keep in mind we were down in the single digit temps during some of this time. He came home so cold, wet up to his waste, hungry and totally exhausted. Would you be dogging these guys if it were your husband or father out there doing everything humanly possible to try and get your water back on again. Please stop and think what these guys are going through for all of you out there. Have a little compassion for these guys they are doing the best they can. You should also be thankful that you know someone that has water that will let you come into their home and do laundry and bath.

    Hey, what does this tell the people of Perry County, we need our own water source, our coal severance tax should pay for building our own water plant, therefore we would not have to be dependent on the Hazard plant, this only hurts everyone when the shortage occurs and I feel these problems are just the beginning.
