South Main customers may be experiencing water pressure issues

Water Pressure

HENDERSON, Ky. -- In the last week, the City of Henderson has experienced several water main breaks along South Main Street. Boil water advisories could be issued at times while the Henderson Water Utilitiy repairs the water main breaks.

The cause of the breaks is an increase in water pressure to compensate for maintenance at the College Tank, near Henderson Community College. The College Tank was removed from service on Aug. 2 and will be out of service for approximately four months.

The areas experiencing pressure problems are:

  • South Main Street from 1660 South Main to Drury Lane
  • Hackberry Street
  • Bruce Street
  • Marshall Drive.

Customers might experience pressure differences at times or may experience total water loss. HWU is working to stabilize the water pressure in the affected area to reduce the stress on the water main.

Please call HWU at (270) 826-2824 if you notice extremely low water pressure or observe a possible water leak in your area.
