Meeting Tonight Over Controversial Pipeline

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.

    Several years ago the water company wanted a pipeline to Louisville. Everyone opposed it saying to use the Kentucky River. So the water company wants to use the Kentucky River, now everyone opposes it and wants a pipeline to Louisville. Go figure.

    Let's all protest this so we can stay under water restrictions forever!
