Taste and Odor Concerns

Due to drought conditions in August and September GMWSS is experiencing the following drinking water related issues:

•  GMWSS Water Treatment Plant staff have observed odor issues at Royal Spring resulting from the low flow and stagnant water in the spring. We do not have any sanitary sewer issues in the area.
•  As a result of the depleted source water produced by Royal Spring, GMWSS has increased water purchases from Frankfort Plant Board (FPB).
•  FPB has informed GMWSS that due to drought conditions in the Kentucky River Basin (FPB source water), FPB is currently experiencing volume, odor, and taste issues.
•  As a result of the water purchased from FPB, GMWSS customers in the Canewood, Victoria Estates, and other subdivisions are experiencing odor and taste issues
•  Frankfort Plant Board (FBP) is NOT under a boil water advisory as of this time. FPB was under a boil water advisory on September 10th – September 13th in a small part of their system.
The boil water advisory did not affect the water purchased by GMWSS from FPB.

These problems will continue until we experience extended rainfall in the Royal Spring and Kentucky River recharge areas.

Any water produced by GMWSS or purchased from FPB that is distributed in our system is still safe for consumption.

However, customers are likely to observe the odor and taste issues.

Rate Adjustments

  • To GMWSS Customers:

    After 12 years without a rate increase, GMWSS' Board of Commissioners and Georgetown's City Council approved rate adjustments for Water and Sewer.
    The new rates are now effective.

    • Residents of Mallard Point, Harbor Village, and Westwoods have also been transitioned to Usage Rates, rather than the previous flat monthly rate.
