Drinking water safe despite sweet odor after Jim Beam fire

Frankfort Plant Board water staff would like to remind customers that the drinking water is safe to drink following the Jim Beam warehouse fire earlier this week that resulted in runoff entering the Kentucky River. 

Some customers may temporarily detect a sweet or bourbon odor and taste in the water; however, it is safe to drink.

FPB staff is aware of this and, with state and local officials, continues to monitor the situation, as public safety and public health remain the priority.

A similar incident last occurred around 2000 when Wild Turkey in Lawrenceburg experienced runoff into the river. Customers noticed a change in the smell and taste of the tap water for several days.

Drinking water safe after Jim Beam warehouse fire

Frankfort Plant Board water staff has determined that the Kentucky River can still provide treatable water for drinking after a fire at a Jim Beam warehouse on McCracken Pike this morning near Frankfort. As a result of the fire-fighting efforts, some runoff entered Glenns Creek and ultimately the Kentucky River.

 FPB water treatment operators are treating the water and advise that some customers with an acute sense of smell may temporarily detect a sweet or bourbon odor in the water. State and local officials continue to monitor the situation.

 “Our priority every day is to ensure public safety and public health,” said FPB Water Treatment Plant Superintendent Julie Roney. “We routinely monitor and sample both the treatment plant and distribution system, with the goal to meet and exceed water standards and to protect our customers.”
