About Us

website-iPadThe Southern Madison Water District was organized in 1968.  It provides water service to approximately 5,000 customers in Southern Madison County in south central Kentucky, including portions of the city of Berea.

The Southern Madison Water District purchases water from Berea Municipal Utilities. The water supply is surface water which is better known as Owsley Fork, Cowbell, Kales and B lakes located on Berea College properties.

With our dedicated staff and board members, our commitment is to provide a safe, clean, and reliable supply of potable drinking water to our customers. We pledge that we will continue to monitor, improve, and protect the water system and deliver a high quality product at the lowest possible cost.

The Southern Madison Water District works to fulfill this commitment to our community through innovation, reliable customer service, and infrastructure investment.

  • Our customer service team provides friendly and knowledgeable support for our customers. Whether your need is related to establishing new service, paying your bill, or ways to conserve water usage, our staff is always available to assist.
  • Innovation drives our business and our services. The Southern Madison Water District believes in water conservation and the protection of our water system. We are committed to providing safe and high-quality water to our customers and rely on a spirit of innovation to help us deliver this mission.
  • Our team of engineers and technicians constantly monitor, upgrade and expand the infrastructure that delivers safe, quality potable drinking water to our customers. We have recently been awarded 50% funds (with SMWD investing the other 50%) to assist in the construction of a new, additional water tower for our district. One more way Southern Madison Water District serves our community.
