Salt River Regional Wastewater Workgroup To

Hold Public Hearings

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The Salt River Regional Wastewater Workgroup (SRRWW) will hold a public hearing to discuss wastewater treatment alternatives being studied within the Salt River Basin Watershed.

Formed in April 2014 in response to HB26 (2011), the SRRWW consists of representatives from Bullitt County Fiscal Court, Bullitt County Sanitation District, City of Mount Washington, City of Shepherdsville, Louisville and Jefferson County Metropolitan Sewer District, Oldham County Environmental Authority and the Oldham County Fiscal Court.

A study is currently underway inventorying existing wastewater capacities and assessing projected future needs within the Salt River Basin to determine if the formation of a Regional Wastewater Commission is recommended.

In an effort to solicit public comment, three hearings were held in late September and early October at the 30% completion point of the study. The next public hearing was on Thursday December 4th at the 60% point. This meeting will review the final findings of the study for presentation to local officials. The meeting will be at KIPDA (11520 Commonwealth Drive, Louisville, KY 40299) in the Burke Room on Monday January 12th at 10:00 am.

Anyone interested in testifying at the hearings may contact David Abell, (502.266.6084, David.Abell@ky.gov) or register at the hearing.

New FEMA Flood Map Information

October 13, 2014

As County Judge Executive, I have seen and heard quite a bit of misinformation concerning the Federal Emergency management Agency (FEMA) Flood Hazard Maps. I, along with over 2,000 other property owners are affected by this plan.

For the past few months I have been working with the Division of Water and local governments to secure funding to mitigate the possibility of flooding. We are looking at various ways to fund these projects. We are also working with FEMA to roll back to the previous flood levels. We have funded engineering studies to best identify who is affected by FEMA’s plan and to get the information to you as quickly as possible.

You should CALL YOUR INSURANCE AGENT IMMEDIATELY. You may be grandfathered in at your present rate. The grandfathering period will only last six months. You can call your senator and representative to address this federal issue – Senator McConnell, Senator Paul and Representative Guthrie. They need to know your concerns since this is a federal issue.

My office is available to listen and help with any and all concerns relating to this federal government mandate. Contact me directly at 543-2262 or on my cell at 819-8646.

Here is a link to the projected flood maps -
