Harrodsburg Declares State of Emergency

Things have gotten bad enough at Harrodsburg's wastewater treatment plant that city commissioners declared a state of emergency Monday so it can make repairs quickly without going through the normal bidding process. The plant is still operating effectively but is in danger of coming out of compliance with state regulations for treating wastewater, which could result in fines, Mayor Eddie Long said.
