Paducah Water’s Distribution Department was Kentucky’s 2018 winner of the American Water Works Association KY/TN Section Award of Excellence in Distribution System Operations in the Medium Systems Category!


Paducah Water’s distribution system, like others across the country, consists of an interconnected series of pipes, water storage facilities, pumps, valves, and hydrants. These components create the infrastructure needed to send clean water from our treatment facility to the homes and businesses we serve.

Public water utilities depend on distribution systems to deliver an uninterrupted supply of pressurized, safe drinking water to all consumers, while also providing fire protection throughout the service area. Our distribution team is constantly working to keep our water infrastructure in excellent condition to maintain our standards of reliability.
