Providing you with safe, clean drinking water at the lowest rates possible is our top priority. Simpson County Water District takes pride in the fact that our water exceeds the extensive requirements set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Kentucky Department of Natural Resources. Simpson Water purchases most of its water from White House Utility District (WHUD) in Tennessee, which draws water from Old Hickory Lake and treats it in Hendersonville, Tennessee. Both utilities work in close partnership to ensure constant high-quality water to customers and strive to keep rates low. We test the purity of the water an average of 100 times each month.
The Environmental Protection Agency regulates the quality of drinking water on a federal level. Its regulations cover acceptable, safe levels of microorganisms, disinfectant, and disinfection byproducts.
High levels of lead in your household drinking water can have significant health impacts, especially for children and pregnant women. Simpson Water tests for lead every three years and has never exceeded the EPA action level.
