Our mission is to work with the residents of the District with pride. Keeping our customers’ best interest in mind by making sure we provide safe, potable water and services at the lowest possible cost.

As the water district has grown the need to expand our facilities has likewise grown. In order to continue providing efficient service and meet the needs of future demands we have relocated our office and maintenance facilities to 2160 Spencer Court in LaGrange. The new location has a night drop box and a drive-thru window for customer convenience. We remodeled this facility as funds were available and without any additional rate increase to our customers. Moving our offices to this location has consolidated our operations and facilitates better customer service.
Oldham County is a great place to grow up, live, and raise children. The reputation of life here is beyond compare to anywhere in the country, and we want to keep it that way by providing you with unequaled quality service and our most valuable natural resource “water”.
