Oops: Angry NKY Water Customers Complain to Wrong Facebook Page

It turns out that there is more than one Corinth Water District.

Adding to the confusion, both dealt with water boil issues this week.

Residents of the Grant County community of Corinth have been without water for the better part of six days, though the problem appears to be improving. At last report, the Corinth, Ky. Water District stated that it had finally found the source of its leak at a creek crossing where three pipes were washed out following storms.

Some residents had been without water altogether for days, while others saw a trickle. The district and city officials have been handing out free water to help customers.

Its Facebook page was busy updating residents and offering feedback to comments throughout the days-long situation.

But so, too, was another Facebook page.

The Corinth Water District in Corinth, Illinois, a small, unincorporated community in the southern part of Illinois much closer to western Kentucky than our neck of the woods, had to issue a statement via social media that it is not located in Kentucky.

It so happened that the Illinois water district was also dealing with a water boil advisory, and when it announced that it had been lifted, some of the Kentucky water district's customers expressed confusion about how to boil water that doesn't exist.

Meanwhile, the Corinth, Ky. Water District stated that it will still have water available at McDaniel Funeral Home from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and then at the fire department after that.
