With the opening of a new water treatment facility in western Hardin County, the area can better handle the population growth from the Fort Knox realignment.
Officials with Hardin County Water District No. 1 on Saturday had a grand opening and rededication of the Pirtle Spring Treatment Plant off Shipley Road.
The building — which was built for increased capacity — will provide quality water through a more efficient process, board chairman Bill Rissel said.
