We can disconnect service several different ways. You may visit us in person to fill out the Disconnect Form or fill out the disconnect form under Customer Accounts – Disconnect Service.
Payments are accepted in our office located at 1951 W Park Rd via cash, check or card. Customers may also pay online through the Authority Pay via check or card or through our automated phone system. Please have your account number and CID number available as phone payments are no longer processed except through the automated system. Also, please remember there is a $2.50 processing fee on all cards and online payments.
New taps are available for purchase in our office. Payments for new meters are taken via cash or check only.
5/8 x 3/4” Meter: $1,600
1” and larger Meters: Actual cost of labor and materials.
Although usage can vary from month to month, large jumps in usage can mean a leak has occurred. The most common issue we see is a running toilet. We offer free dye tablets in the office to check your toilet for leaks. Be sure to check appliances, faucets, hot water heaters and outside spigots for drips or cracks in pipes.
Make sure water in house isn’t being used (inside)
Locate water meter in black box or round metal box and remove lid, the meter box is normally located in front of the house (outside)
For digital meters start with lid of meter closed, then open, close and open lid again to get to the leak indicator screen ( should be all zero’s with flashing lines above the numbers) if any numbers appear on the screen with flashing lines you have water going through the meter. There will also be a plus symbol that will appear on register. If there is not usage inside of the house, the meter reading should not change.(outside)
Non digital meters, leak indicator will be a round red dial with a black line on the bottom right of register. If that dial is spinning, water is going through the meter (outside)
If you have determined that you have leak, go to the house and find the main water shutoff valve in your house (normally where the water comes into the house or at the hot water heater) Turn that valve off and go check the meter once again. If the meter still indicates usage, then you have a water leak outside on your service line from the meter to the main shut off valve. In most cases, the water line is positioned in a straight line from the meter box to the house. You can walk the water line and check for wet spots in the yard.
If meter is not running after the main water shut off valve is off, then the leak is inside your house. Check all water faucet hook ups inside of house (kitchen, bathroom, and washer hook ups) (inside bathroom, kitchen, basement)
If you have a high-water bill and your meter is not running, then the next step would be to check your toilet. If water connections are not leaking in house, then get some food coloring and take the tank lid off your toilet and put 10 drops of food coloring in tank. Do not use the toilet for 15-20 minutes and check the toilet bowl for colored water. If colored water is in toilet bowl then the valve/flange inside your toilet is leaking. (bathroom)
New accounts are scheduled to be started two (2) business days from the time of application.
A $25 new service fee is assessed to the first bill of each new account. This is a non-refundable service charge for our techs to inspect and perform any maintenance to the meter when transferring service to a new customer.
New customer deposits are refunded to the customer’s account after two (2) years of good history or two or fewer late payments. If service is disconnected before that time, the deposit is applied to the final bill and any additional funds are refunded to the customer.

Locate water meter in black box or round metal box and remove lid, the meter box is normally located in front of the house.
To read a digital meter, open the plastic lid and the meter reading will be displayed. Read the numbers that are underlined and then add two zeros on the end. This will be the actual reading.
To read analog or non-digital meters, read the numbers from left to right before the decimal, this would be actual use to 100 gallons. The analog hand represents tens of gallons, one full sweep equals 10 gallons. Should the analog hand be in between numbers use the lower of the two numbers.
During winter you can keep your faucets at a small drip to allow water to flow through the pipes or wrap your pipes with towels or other insulation to keep them protected. It is also helpful to open cabinets under sinks to allow the pipes to be warmed by the heat in the home.
If you experience random drops in pressure or are completely out of water, please call our office at 270-737-1056 for assistance.

In September 2010, the HHS assembled a panel of scientist to review new information regarding the ingestion of fluoride and to develop new recommendations for community water fluoridation. The findings from the review led the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to propose changing the recommended fluoride level for community water systems to 0.7 mg/l. Therefore, Hardin County Water District No. 2 adjusted the naturally occurring fluoride levels in your drinking water to the recommended level. For additional information regarding Kentucky’s oral health program, please call the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services at 502-564-3246.
The frequency of testing depends on the contaminant in question. For instance, chlorine is tested with on-line instrumentation continuously throughout the treatment process and distribution system. Other contaminants may be tested multiple times each day, weekly, monthly, or less frequent depending on risk factors. For a list of detected contaminants, results, and the frequency of the testing, please see our Consumer Confidence Report. [CCR2022]
Due to the source of our water supply and the geology of the area, our water is considered moderately hard. For additional information select this link: (CCR2022)
Higher pressures can stress plumbing, plumbing fixtures, and appliances. The District does not require, but highly recommends the installation of a pressure regulator to help protect your plumbing and appliances from higher pressures.
Concerns or questions about water quality can be reported to our office at 270-737-1056. We will gladly send a service tech to your area to check and perform any maintenance if necessary.
The District does not require, but highly recommends the installation of an expansion tank. Pressure within a closed plumbing system can cause damage and may be prevented with a properly installed expansion tank. In some instances, the installation of an expansion tank may be required by Kentucky plumbing code. We recommend that you check with a licensed plumber to determine your needs.
