9/21/19 The boil water advisory is still in effect for all areas listed below. Please note bottled water is available ONLY for those customers under a boil water advisory, at the Franklin Co Fire station between the hours of 7:00 AM to 6:00 PM. The hours remain the same for Monterey Fire Station (pickup before 5:00pm). We realize if you are not under the boil water advisory your water may taste earthy, musty or dirty but it is still safe to drink. That is due to the fact we purchase our water from the Frankfort Plant Board who issued an alert on 9/12/19 concerning the taste. Frankfort Plant Board has posted more information about this water taste and odor issue on their website, Facebook page, in the State Journal and on Lexington and local TV stations.
