Madisonville Water Treatment Plant Recognized for Superior Performance

glass-of-waterMADISONVILLE, Ky. (7/23/14) — The Energy and Environment Cabinet has announced that the Madisonville Light and Water Department has been recognized as one of 61 water treatment plants in the state consistently producing drinking water that exceeded state and federal quality standards.

According to a press release from the state EEC, Madisonville was among 149 plants participating in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Area-Wide Optimization Program for 2013.

The program challenges plants to reduce turbidity levels below those required by state and federal regulations. Turbidity, or cloudiness, of water can be caused by sand and dirt, as well as bacteria and viruses.

Particle removal is critical for producing water that is free of dirt and microbes that can cause waterborne diseases.
