Crews were out Tuesday morning preparing the new Grayson County Water District facility for its opening on March 12.

The Grayson County Water District announced this weekend that it will officially begin operating out of its new location at 21 Shull White Rd. in Leitchfield, on Monday, March 12.

Beginning March 12, the water district will accept customers only at this new location, and the water district will no longer operate out of the Warren RECC facility.

Grayson County Water District Manager Kevin Shaw hopes the new facility will speed up service now that it may focus solely on water, and he expects the new drive-thru window to be much easier for customers to use.

Shaw said 21 Shull White Rd. is a "great location" that will also be beneficial to water district employees because it will allow the water district to house all of its employees under one roof. Currently, he said, water district crews operate out of one building, and office staff operates out of another.

The water district will move from the Warren RECC facility after close of day on Friday, March 9 to be open for business on Monday, March 12.

The Grayson County Water District in February of 2017 purchased the land for its new office and warehouse facility: a two-acre lot on the corner of Grayson Springs Road and Shull White Road in Leitchfield from J C Lee & Sons for $80,000.

The total cost of the new office, warehouse, and storage facilities - which was designed by Brandstetter Carroll, Inc., constructed by UD Contracting, Inc. and financed through USDA Rural Development - was $1.3 million, Shaw said.
