Important information for businesses/buildings reopening
As buildings reopen, businesses, schools, and property management teams will be opening areas that have been empty or underused.  Properly flushing plumbing is essential before reoccupying any spaces that have been un-used for the last 6 to 8 weeks.
Flushing water lines and water-using appliances is an easy way to ensure that high water quality is maintained.  Flushing moves older water that has been sitting in the pipes out of the building and brings in fresh water.  Flushing is easy and HWU has made the process easy to understand with the release of the following infographic.
Any questions, please feel free to contact us at 270.826.2421.
Welcome to Henderson Water Utility’s Website.

This site contains information about Henderson, Kentucky’s Henderson Water Utility, the services we offer, and other information of interest to the community.

The Water and Sewer Commission meetings are normally held at the Bobby Gish Administrative Building located at 111 Fifth Street on the third Monday of each month at 4:30 p.m. local time.  Please call 270-826-2421 if you have any questions concerning the meetings.

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.

Henderson Water Utility will be smoke testing the sanitary sewer lines along Community Drive to identify connections and breaks in the existing lines on Saturday, July 11th from 9:00 am until 11:00 am. Homeowners or businesses may see some smoke in their homes or buildings during this period. The artificial smoke is non-toxic, non-staining, and quickly dissipates. If you have smoke in your home or building, simply open your windows, doors, or turn on your exhaust fans to help vent these areas. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the HWU offices at 270.826.2421. ... See MoreSee Less
