...And New Ideas to Help You Manage it.
In Louisville, water is the natural resource that never runs out. Up to 75 billion gallons of water in the Ohio River flows by Louisville every day. On average, Louisville Water produces 119 million gallons of drinking water daily, which takes far less than 1% of the water that flows by us each day. Louisville is fortunate to have an abundant water source and Louisville Water has capacity. In fact, we have the ability to double our daily production almost instantly.

Louisvillians can be elitists when it comes to tap water. In fact the water supply is so good it has a name - Louisville pure tap®. Louisville Water was the first - and to date the only - water utility to trademark tap water. Louisville pure tap® is proudly served at board meetings, festivals, sporting events, concerts and many other places.
Louisville Water's base rate is a good deal. We have declining rate blocks for commercial and industrial customers.

"We've had great tasting water and a progressive water utility for so long, we almost take it for granted. Many cities however are extremely envious so to say the least of both the quality and quantity of our water supply. It's a huge part of what makes Louisville a great place to live as well as grow a business, because companies know that they can count on a constant, afforadable supply of water."
