Whiskey River Take Me Home....Not!

News coverage of a fire in a Jim Beam bourbon warehouse in Woodford County has highlighted a fish kill and the impact of 45,000 barrels of bourbon on the Kentucky and Ohio Rivers. Lightning struck the warehouse on July 2nd, causing an intense fire that was allowed to burn out over 3 days.

The spill led to a “severe” fish kill on the Kentucky River, according to the Division of Water, due to a lack of oxygen in the water.

It appears that the leading edge this spill will reach the Henderson area sometime Friday (7/12/19) afternoon, after entering the Ohio River on Monday.

The Ohio River Sanitary Commission (ORSANCO) maintains highly sophisticated monitoring equipment at locations along the River downstream from the spill, including at the Louisville Water Company and the Evansville Water & Sewer Utility intake upstream from Henderson. These monitoring stations are not expected to detect the spill as it passes, due to the high flowrate of the Ohio River and the dilution provided by a big river.

So, if you were planning to head to the boat ramps to fill a glass or a flask, don’t bother. We expect the remnants of alcohol & bourbon in the water to be below the level of possible detection.
