Ironton’s water quality will drive people out of town

Let’s talk about the water in Ironton.

You can’t drink it. It is always rusty looking. It is really not fit for anything.

On Sunday, July 11, my neighbor and I looked at a glass of dirty water.

My water bill for last month was $170 dollars. For what?

It is nasty water. It is the highest water in surrounding areas.

Hecla has good water. Ashland, Ky., has good water. Wheelersburg also has good water at a cheap price. Only in Ironton do people have to pay these kind of bills. Then they want to know why people are leaving. Wake up city. This town is shot.
