Welcome to Kentucky American Water
Kentucky American Water is your local water company.
Our lives revolve around water. It’s somehow involved in everything thing we do, everything we use. We are experts in water delivery.
In Kentucky we serve over 490,000 thousand people, supplying high quality water to 12 communities. We abide by regulations, invest in our vast infrastructure, develop industry innovations, educate our customers on wise water use, and help out where we can in our cities and towns.
In Kentucky, the Kentucky Public Service Commission sets rules and we carefully follow them. Those regulations are what help to ensure that everyone is receiving quality water service at a fair price. All increases in service rates are directly related to the cost of providing high quality service and are subjected to a public review process and approval by the Kentucky Public Service Commission.
In addition, Kentucky American Water follows strict United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) regulations to help to provide high quality drinking. Because we work in cooperation with the USEPA to help in the development of national drinking water standards, we are often years ahead of the industry in implementing regulations.
Kentucky American Water is committed to delivering high quality water to all of our customers. In Kentucky, we conduct about 15,000 tests per year for about 100 potential contaminants, checking drinking water quality at every stage of the water treatment and delivery process.
