Countryview Update...

Sincere apologies for project delays at Countryview right at the beginning of lawn work season. The new storm sewer ran into a conflicting water main at Ilex Drive that we quickly discovered is the only water source for the entire subdivision. Moving it without first creating a second connection to our water main along Old Madisonville Road would have left Countryview without water during the water main relocation work and would have put it under a mandatory boil water notice. To avoid this, we have come up with a plan to connect an existing water main on Peggy Drive to the Old Madisonville Road water main. This work was scheduled for the week before Easter until we experienced a major leak at Vine Street. We have rescheduled the Peggy Drive work and the Ilex Drive water main relocation for the week after Easter. After that, the storm sewer work should quickly finish. We again apologize for prolonging the inconveniences associated with this project.

The Boil Water Advisory issued for portions of the City of Henderson on April 14th has been lifted.

It is advised for customers to run a 5 to 10 min flush at all their taps and throw away all ice.

HWU Crews completed work on a major water main break near the intersection of S. Green St and Vine Street on Monday afternoon.

The leak was on a 20" water main that serves large areas of Henderson, including the East End, Corporate Park, Sand Lane and areas to the south and east of Downtown. Due to a drop of pressure in some areas, a boil water advisory was issued for the area from Clay Street to Drury Lane, and from the Ohio River to KY 2084 (Old Highway 41 South). The advisory had to remain in effect until bacteria testing in the affected areas was complete, and those tests results were obtained at 2:19 p.m. on Tuesday, 16 April.

We regret the inconvenience caused by this BWA and thank our customers for their patience.

If you have questions, please contact the Henderson Water Utility at 270.826.2421, or check our website, hkywater.org

Affected areas included:
• Henderson Corporate Park – Commonwealth Drive
• S. Main Street – Drury Lane to Clay St.
• East End – Clay Street to Atkinson Street to Sand Lane to Green Street
• Canoe Creek Subdivision
• Lakeland Subdivision
• Fair Acres Apartments
• Chapelwood Apartments
• Burchwood Subdivision
• Woodland Apartments

Schools impacted were Jefferson Elementary, South Middle School and South Heights Elementary.

Update...

HWU Crews are completing work on a major water main break near the intersection of S. Green St and Vine Street.

The leak was on a 20" water main that serves large areas of Henderson, including the East End, Corporate Park, Sand Lane and areas to the south and east of Downtown. The section of leaking water main was completely isolated, and pressure was quickly restored in the water system. However, due to a drop of pressure in some areas, a boil water advisory was issued for the area from Clay Street to Drury Lane, and from the Ohio River to KY 2084 (Old Highway 41 South). See map below.

Residents should boil water for human consumption or cooking for at least 5 minutes. Un-boiled water can be safely used for bathing.

Today (Monday), crews are attempting to complete the repair, but a repair collar has developed a small leak. Additional parts are being assembled and installed this morning. If this work successfully stops the leakage, the area immediately downstream from the leak will be flushed and the entire system will be back in service.

Regulations require us to perform tests for bacteria in the water after the leak is completely repaired, and those tests require at least 18 hours to complete. At this point, we expect the Boil Advisory to be lifted sometime Tuesday morning, April 16th.

If you have questions, please contact the Henderson Water Utility at 270.826.2421, or check our website, www.hkywater.org/

Affected areas include:
• Henderson Corporate Park – Commonwealth Drive
• S. Main Street – Drury Lane to Clay St.
• East End – Clay Street to Atkinson Street to Sand Lane to Green Street
• Canoe Creek Subdivision
• Lakeland Subdivision
• Fair Acres Apartments
• Chapelwood Apartments
• Burchwood Subdivision
• Woodland Apartments
• Cottages of Henderson

Local schools impacted are Jefferson Elementary, South Middle School and South Heights Elementary.


Estimated time of water leak repair: 6 additional hours
Estimated time of Boil Water Advisory release: Morning of April 16th
Person in charge of the situation: Tom Williams or Josh Thompson
