“Mr. Price –
I’m writing in response to the inquiry you sent to Mayor Jim Gray’s office about access to clean drinking water in Lexington/Fayette County.
Kentucky American Water provides drinking water throughout Lexington and Fayette County. All residents receive the same quality drinking water that meets and exceeds the US EPA’s Safe Drinking Water Act regulatory standards. As a water utility, we can ensure the quality of the drinking water that we deliver to a residence or business, but once the water passes through the water meter and onto a customer’s property it is ultimately the home or business owner’s responsibility to ensure the internal plumbing is maintained in order to prevent any impairments to the drinking water within the building. Additionally, the perception of drinking water tastes and odors varies widely between individuals.
