Wednesday July 6, 2011
Louisville Water Company has completed a major capital improvement project that will improve water pressure, reliability and fire protection for northeastern Jefferson County including the neighborhoods of Landis Lakes, Copper Field and Lake Forest. The project included construction of over five miles of 36-inch transmission main along I-64 from the Gene Snyder to the Jefferson/Shelby County line. The project also includes a new pump station and water storage tank.
The infrastructure will serve an area that’s seen rapid residential and commercial growth in the past 15 years. The total project budget was $20 million. Louisville Water received $4 million in funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to help fund the transmission main project.
