Diversity, Inclusion & Equity

There is no place for racism, hate and discrimination in our community and that includes Louisville Water Company. As a community asset for nearly 160 years, Louisville Water has a responsibility to respond and be a force for positive change. We need to be bold and stand up for racial equity. Part of the healing process is creating an atmosphere of open and honest dialogue. Hearing each other helps us understand each other.
