Tony Lewis is the Former Perry County PRIDE coordinator and says close to 200 people living on Fort Branch Road are still waiting for clean drinking water.

Lewis says about 40 families do not have access to city water.

"This is the 21st century. That should be a priority, getting people clean safe drinking water," said Lewis.

Kimberly Lewis says they deserve city water just as much as anyone else.

"My water it's so bad that when I, when we, take a bath we have to put a sock over the faucet because there is stuff in the water," said Lewis.

Judge Executive Denny Ray Noble says Fort Branch Road is one of the areas he is looking at to put city water in, but it is a tough situation.

Lewis says he is meeting with officials this Saturday to try and get more help.
