Water & Wastewater Management
Pennyrile Water Management Plan
The Pennyrile Water Management Plan is a statewide effort to identify problems involving local and regional water utilities and distributors that are projected to have water supply shortages during a drought. The project also identifies water utility suppliers with distribution or capacity infrastructure problems that could also lead to water shortage to some residents. In any county where a water supplier or distributor is identified as having water shortages projected sometime over the next 20 years, the water supplier and local government officials must submit a plan to address how they intend to solve the projected water supply problems. The plan also addresses projected wastewater needs for the Pennyrile area. Jamie Lawrence is the Water Management contact located at the Pennyrile Area Development District.
