Many of us take water for granted but for some area residents who live in rural parts of Kentucky that don't get water delivered to their homes, it's a precious commodity. Monday, the USDA Rural Utilities Service gave the Green River Valley Water Treatment Plant $6.1 million.
The money will be used to make additions and improvements to the existing water plant.
The plant will be able to process six million gallons of water a day versus the previous $4 million. The plant serves more than 20,000 people in Hart, Barren, Metcalfe, Green, and Edmonson counties. Improvements will not be finished until 2004.
