Overview
 

At Warren Water, we take great pride in our role of ensuring high-quality water and wastewater services to homes and businesses throughout the county. Clean, safe drinking water and reliable wastewater service are mainstays of healthy, vibrant communities, and we are committed to ensuring these services are affordable and available to our region now and in the future.

Warren Water provides these critical services throughout one of the fastest-growing regions in the state. Based on the United States Census Bureau, the population of Warren County has increased 17.5% between 2000 and 2009. During the same time, the number of Warren Water customers grew 42 percent.

Our Customers

With a diverse blend of residential, agricultural, commercial and industrial customers, Warren Water works diligently to serve approximately 26,000 water customers with an average of 7.5 million gallons of water each day. We also collect and dispose of wastewater from over 5,000 customers. 

In addition, we have a joint operations agreement with Butler County Water System, Inc. and Simpson County Water District, where we serve over 7,900 additional water customers. 

 

The Systems That Serve You

Warren Water maintains over 1,200 miles of pipeline, along with 32 pumping stations and 28 storage tanks throughout a 530-square-mile area. The sewer system includes over 160 miles of sewer.

Where Your Water Comes From

Warren Water purchases most of its water from Bowling Green Municipal Utilities (BGMU), which draws water from the Barren River. Both utilities work in close partnership to ensure constant, high-quality water. We test the purity of the water an average of 100 times each month. An annual report of our water testing and results can be found on our site’s Water Quality tab.



Wastewater Services and Environmental Protection

Our commitment to environmental stewardship flows through our wastewater facilities that we maintain to meet the growing needs of the region.

We manage a network of about 90 miles of sewer mains, over 160 miles of sewer lines, 47 wastewater pumping stations and other facilities to transport one million gallons of wastewater to BGMU's wastewater treatment plant each day. 


Planning for the future


Warren County is an inviting community for families and industries. Warren Water leadership works closely with the economic development community to keep pace with changing needs. This includes identifying growth projections and industry needs, brainstorming ways to meet those needs, and ensuring adequate and reliable water services.

We regularly compare system capacities to existing and projected customer usage to determine where improvements are needed. The challenge is not only to plan for these improvements, but also to find the most economical funding sources in order to keep rates as low as possible for our customers.
