Knott County Water Problems

{Hindman, Kentucky}...Knott County officials say several families on the Knott County Water System were left without water after both water pumps failed over the weekend. Wednesday morning, a crane will lift the tanks out of the lake to see what the problem is and two new pumps will be ready for installation. The city of Hindman and the Caney area have been put on the old city of Hindman water system. For everyone else, bottled and gallons of water will be available.

Water pick-up points:
• Carr Creek Water Treatment Plant on Wednesday afternoon
• Ball Creek Fire Department Wednesday afternoon
• Fisty Fire Department Wednesday afternoon
• Lotts Creek Fire Department Wednesday afternoon

You must have a recent water bill to prove you are a customer to receive the free water.
