Residents of an eastern Kentucky town can look forward to a new sewer system. During a stop in Hazard Thursday, Governor Steve Beshear brought word of state funding for the project.
You might not think construction of a new sewer system would be a headline grabber. But, to many people in the Hazard community, it will mean increased security for a critical utility.
During the winter of 2009-20-10, the Hazard water treatment and distribution system experienced severe failures. Some areas saw water outages for up to 45 days.
