Sustainability on Tap: Louisville Water Company

Louisville Water Company - Crescent Hill ReservoirUofL and the Louisville Water Company are collaborating again this year to educate students, faculty, staff, and the public on the value of getting back to the tap with events, guest lectures & water filling station signs.

Do you know where our drinking water comes from or the engineering behind it? Explore the political and global concerns around water, or dive into marketing issues. Louisville Water's story of science, and public health brings real-world examples to the classroom, and they are always happy to provide staff for guest lectures or tours.
