Hi,
I am wondering if someone could tell me why the water quality rates so low for Oldham county. I've been researching areas around Louisville because it looks as though we may be moving there next spring. Oldham County seems to suit our needs from what I can tell online, but it concerns me that the water quality rated 1 on a scale of 1 to 100 with 100 being best. This was on Sperling's website. Is this accurate, and if so, why?
Thanks,
Shan

Totally inaccurate. The entire region was rated #1 this year. I have a feeling the 1 is actually been reversed from a 100. Someone at Sperling's been drinking too much!

Shan, I am a resident of Oldham County. What you need to know is that most of the residents of OC are customers of either Louisville Water Co or the LaGrange Public Waterworks. I am not looking at a map right now, but generally speaking Oldham County water serves a banana shaped area arcing from southeast to center and up to the northeastern area's of the county.

I have never heard of any major issue with the quality of water in any area of the county. Two years ago, there was a major early summer drought which was also prior to a major infrastructure investment coming on-line. This led to stoppage of lawn watering and car washes. It may be that the water quality slipped a bit during that time, too.

I appreciate the replies. Thank you. That's a relief! I couldn't imagine why the water could be rated that low! I am stressing over having to move, although, the fact that the area seems like such a nice place really helps. It's still hard to leave family and friends.
Thanks again for your help.

Leaving family is tough, friends who are really friends will allow you to gather lots of new friends too. The people of Oldham County are some of the greatest people I have ever met. They make great friends easily and will accept you too!
