Shepherdsville Sewer Extension To Encourage Growth

Governor Steve Beshear Thursday announced the expansion of the Shepherdsville sewer system.Three million federal stimulus dollars will be used to extend the sewer system from Shepherdsville to the Jim Beam Distillery, where a new visitors' center is being built.Beshear says the expansion is not only for the benefit of the distillery. It should also facilitate new construction in rural Bullitt County."They will be able to recruit and locate various commercial users and industrial users all along that route," he says. "And it's just been impossible until now to do that because they didn't have adequate sewer service."Beshear says it isn't clear how many jobs will be created while the line is built. He expects construction to begin soon.
