Underground aquifers unaffected thus far by drought; Patoka officials ask for conservation


PERRY COUNTY – Despite a once-in-a-generation drought that has caused some utilities to ask customers to conserve water, Perry County’s public water systems are faring well, thanks in part to high-capacity wells and underground aquifers that thus far have been little affected by the lack of rain.

“We’re holding our own right now and there’s been no problem with the amount of water we can pump or the quality of water we’re producing,” Tell City Water Department Superintendent Dale Poole said.
