 Water and Sewer Commission Meeting Rescheduled

Henderson is a “Combined Sewer System” community.  In the older parts of the city, we have combined sewers that channel both sanitary and stormwater to the wastewater treatment plant when it rains.  In newer parts of the city, we have a separate storm sewer system.

WATER MAIN BREAK

A large leak on a 12-inch water main near the intersection of Fifth and Water Streets has been contained and the Vine Street Tank is now refilling. Industrial customer Sitex and International Paper have shut off use, and Henderson County Water District is supplementing supply to its customers by drawing from its water storage tanks.

Repairs to the 12-inch water main are expected to be completed by late this evening (Monday 12-24-2014).

Thanks to Sitex, Industrial Paper, and the Henderson County Water District, a Boil Water Advisory will only apply to a small section of Fifth Street between Water and Main Streets.

Water Street in the vicinity of the leak will be closed for the remainder of the day.
