Governor presents checks for $852K for Adair improvements

Governor Andy Beshear was in Taylor County on Friday, February 11, 2022, to meet with officials from Adair, Taylor, and Casey Counties, and present checks for a variety of improvements in each county.
Adair County officials received a check for $147,600 to resurface portions of Richard Hollow Road, and the Columbia Adair Utilities District received a check in the amount of $705,214 to improve water volume and pressure in the Knifley area.
The Adair County Water District will receive $705,214 to construct a new water line along Kentucky Highway 551 that will connect two existing water lines on each side of the Green River. This will improve water volume and pressure for the Knifley area. The local pump station and pressure-reducing valve also will be replaced.
"Clean water is something that a lot of people take for granted. Improvement to these water line projects and the pump station will be a tremendous asset to Adair County," said Adair County Judge/Executive Gale Cowan. "The resurfacing project on Richards Hollow Road will also be a huge asset. This road has 25 to 30 homes and businesses on it and is a heavily traveled road in Adair County. We are happy to see state funding for this project and want to thank Gov. Beshear and his staff for the assistance."
"Clean water is essential for the health of families and the vibrancy of a society," said Sen. Max Wise, whose district includes Taylor and Adair counties. "I appreciate the work that Taylor and Adair County officials are doing to ensure a sound infrastructure for their residents."
The Lake Cumberland and Lincoln Trail Area Development Districts submitted the funding requests for all projects to the KIA. The $3 million will fund nine projects ranging from water line extensions to tank repairs.
"None of our local water districts should have to piece together their lines or equipment in order to provide wastewater services or clean drinking water to their citizens," Gov. Beshear said. "These investments will restore aging infrastructure, increase capacity for future growth and secure reliable services to the residents of this area. All part of our plan to build a better Kentucky."
