Access to clean, safe drinking water is often taken for granted. Here at Oldham County Water, our commitment to providing high-quality water for our community is something we don’t take lightly. We are fortunate to have a plentiful groundwater supply here in Oldham County. By carefully monitoring and treating the water supply, OCWD ensures that the water distributed to homes, schools, businesses, and public facilities meets or surpasses established health standards.
Water is not just a resource; it’s a lifeline that sustains our planet, ecosystems, economy, and our communities. That is why this month is dedicated to highlighting water quality.
Here’s why Water Quality is essential:
Human Health- Access to clean water is crucial for maintaining a healthy society. By ensuring clean water sources, we safeguard the well-being of our communities.
Ecosystems- Poor water quality disrupts ecosystems impacting biodiversity in all species.
Agriculture- Farmers depend on water for irrigation and livestock. Poor water quality can hinder crops and endanger our food supply chain.
Economic Impact: Industries rely on clean water. A compromised water supply affects local economies and long-term sustainability.
Here at Oldham County Water, we have the privilege to protect and preserve our water source. By valuing clean water, we invest in the health and prosperity of our community for generations to come.
