Henderson Water Utility (HWU) is planning to repair a waterline leak starting Tuesday evening (12/11/2018) and continuing overnight. This time has been chosen to avoid peak traffic times. This work will result in Green Street between 3rd and 4th streets being closed for the duration of the repair. HWU and KYTC plans to shut down the work zone after rush hour on Tuesday 11 December and reopen by early morning. Traffic will be rerouted around the work area.

Trucks southbound will be detoured from 5th Street to Priest St, Priest St to 2nd Street, 2nd Street back to Green. Passenger cars will detour through the Downtown area. Please see the following map.

At this time, we don’t anticipate that our work will take more than a few hours, but we won’t know for sure until we excavate the work zone. The leak is on the 100+ year old, 20” cast iron line that runs from the Atkinson Park Tank to the East End, which was one of the first and largest big water mains installed in Henderson, back when the Waterworks was next to the Hospital. It is still a backbone of our water distribution system.

Throwback Thursday

Here is a map of the City of Henderson sewer system from 100 years ago “showing the sewers constructed.” As you can see, in 1918, and some years afterward, Henderson’s raw sewage discharged directly to the river. Fortunately, over the years, the citizens of Henderson have invested in infrastructure improvements which have greatly improved and expanded the system beyond what our forefathers could have imagined. Believe it or not, most of these old pipes are still in use; however, some have been repurposed for stormwater. Those still in use as a sanitary sewer, drain to the Waste Water Treatment plant on Drury Lane for treatment before discharging to the river.
