Crescent Hill Filtration Plant wins national award

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville water has already been named the best tasting in the country. Now, it's celebrating another big achievement.

The Crescent Hill Filtration plant has been given the "Excellence in Water Treatment" award. The award was given based on the treatment facilities, practices and results.

Louisville's other water treatment plant in Prospect also won this award in 2010, making Louisville only the second community with two water treatment plans to achieve that distinction.

The Crescent Hill plant is only the 14th in North America to receive the award. The Louisville Water Company said it continues to look forward.

"We're already thinking about what the next barrier to treatment will be," CEO Jim Brammel said. "What are we going to do 10 years down the road to block future contaminants? We know that EPA regulations will become more strict, and we're already thinking about that next phase."
