Swimming Pool Policy



Customers of Letcher County Water & Sewer



Effective immediately, the Letcher County Water & Sewer District (LCWSD) will no longer allow fire departments or commercial haulers to fill swimming pools for any residence due to water use accountability issues. This long-standing Kentucky Public Service Commission regulation has prohibited such use due to the inability to account for water loss in the system and will now be strictly enforced. There are cases currently before the Kentucky Public Service Commission regarding this unmetered practice. This does not affect fire protection services. Going forward, LCWSD customers should fill their swimming pools by utilizing metered water from their LCWSD residential water connection. For questions, comments, or further clarification, you may contact the Letcher County Water & Sewer District at (606) 633-8550.
