map300 hendersonHENDERSON COUNTY, Ky. (7.9/18) — Henderson County reached out to Owensboro today to offer assistance due to Owensboro’s water line break this morning that left many Daviess County residents without water.

Area fire departments wanted to ensure they were prepared.

“I received a call from Owensboro Emergency Management Agency Director Andy Ball requesting assistance,” said Henderson County EMA Director Kenny Garrett. “We got together with several volunteer fire department chiefs here in Henderson and were able to send a 5,000-gallon tanker truck from the Hebbardsville Volunteer Fire Department to Owensboro’s Station 1 to standby until this event is rectified.”

Other Henderson County volunteer fire departments bordering Daviess County are on standby ready to assist in any way needed should Daviess County call, Henderson officials said.

OMU social media lists crews have been working since early this morning to reach two water mains that were broken, leaving Owensboro and Daviess County residents without water. Crews have been able to excavate the area and are working to make the necessary repairs. OMU hopes to restore water service by tomorrow. However, the boil water order will remain in effect until further notice.
