Water & Sewer Department

The Versailles Water Treatment Plant has production capacity of 10 million gallons of water per day. The source of water for Versailles is the Kentucky River. Versailles has taken a pro-active approach in assuring that all customers of Versailles Municipal Water will have safe clean drinking water well into the future.

The Versailles Wastewater Treatment Plant has a design capacity of 3 million gallons per day. Recent renovations have been implemented to improve the bio-solids handling capacity at the facility. These improvements will greatly increase the efficiency of this facility.

In order to sign up for water/sewer service, you must visit the Versailles Municipal Utilities office located in City Hall at 196 South Main Street. This office is open Monday through Friday 8:00a.m. – 4:00p.m. A $75.00 deposit is required for all customers. The deposit must be paid at the time you sign up for service. We only accept cash, check, or money order.

In order to have service placed in your name on the same day, you must come into the office by 2:30p.m. If you are moving from one location to another, within our service area, then your deposit will transfer to the new location.
