HWEA General Manager Len Hale said that the 26-mile, $21 million project pumps untreated water from the lake to the Moss Treatment Plant in Hopkinsville.
Over 8,000 sections of pipe planned to be buried to build the subterranean pipeline. Hale said that the funding for the project came from a bond issue.
“Right now, we have had no problems, and that frightens us when we are 50-60 percent complete. It’s been an easy project so far that is on schedule and in budget,” Hale said. He anticipated that the project would be complete and Hopkinsville would receive water by November of this year.
