Drinking Water Being Delivered To Knott County Residents

Knott County residents are getting some welcomed news today.

Several county departments have been working for days to restore water to residents after a combination of problems left wells in several parts of the county dry. Wednesday, officials said things are looking much better.

"As of now everybody has water. There's some areas of the county that has lower pressure than others, but everybody has water. Of course we're still under a boil water advisory, but everybody has water," said Emergency Management Director Greg Mullins.

Mullins also says the water pressure should get stronger throughout the day.

County officials say drinking water is being distributed throughout the county Wednesday afternoon that was donated by the Winchester Dairy Farms and delivered by the Appalachian Christian Project. They say there will be stations at Carr Creek Volunteer Fire Department, the American Legion Building in Hindman, and the Carrie Community Center.

Officials say a BOIL WATER ADVISORY is in effect until further notice for all tap water.
