Bevin, Rogers Announced Project to Assist Water Supply Issues in Martin County

On Saturday, February 24, 2018, US Representative Hal Rogers and Governor Matt Bevin announced a $3.4 million project to alleviate water supply issues within the Martin County Water District. The project will help secure clean water for the people of Martin County and will be administered by the Kentucky Division of Abandoned Mine Lands, which has received preliminary approval from the US Office of Surface Mining and Reclamation Enforcement. The work will include installing a secondary water intake in the Tug Fork River, upgrading the Crum Reservoir dam, installing a new water line from intake to the dam, and making improvements to the district’s water treatment plant. Additionally, a monitoring system will be installed to allow water plant operators to check operations within the system.
