Knott Co. water supply knocked out

Hundreds, if not thousands of people were without water in Knott County after both water pumps failed yesterday. County officials say families could be without water for several days. Right now the exact number of people without water is unknown but it affects almost everyone on the Knott County water system. While crews work to repair the pumps, countless people in Knott County will remain without water. The city of Hindman and the Caney area have been put on the old city of Hindman water system so they will have water, but for everyone else, water by the bottle and gallon will be available.

Water pick-up points:

  • Carr Creek Water Treatment Plant on Wednesday afternoon
  • Ball Creek Fire Department Wednesday afternoon
  • Fisty Fire Department Wednesday afternoon
  • Lotts Creek Fire Department Wednesday afternoon

You must have a recent water bill to prove you are a customer to receive the free water.
