A boil-water advisory has been issued by the Harrodsburg Water Department, effective from 6 p.m. Wednesday until further notice, according to Walter Bottoms, water treatment plant superintendent.
A notice was issued to all city of Harrodsburg water customers, the North Mercer Water District, and Lake Village Water Association customers along the U.S. 68 corridor from Shaker Village to the river only.
The clear well at the water treatment plant will undergo a second modification in which the last interconnect from the old clear well to the new is installed. The work is part of Harrodsburg’s water plant expansion project.
A release from Bottoms said the situation “poses a health concern for water users by virtue of the possibility of contamination of the drinking water in the area.”
Water for human consumption should boiled at least three minutes before use.
