Electric service in Northern Kentucky is provided by two companies – Duke Corporation and Owen Electric Cooperative.
Union Light, Heat and Power
Natural gas service in Northern Kentucky is provided by Union Light, Heat & Power Company (ULH&P), an operating subsidiary of Cincinnati Gas & Electric Company (CG&E), which is a subsidiary of Cinergy Corp.
The primary supplier of natural gas to CG&E is Columbia Gas Transmission Corporation. However, CG&E is connected to six major interstate pipelines, extending the company's sources to all major producing regions in the United States and Canada.
Large industrial and commercial customers may now buy their own gas from the same suppliers and contract with CG&E for transport of the gas. CG&E has 22-million gallons of propane storage available for peak shaving. Firm, interruptible and combination rate schedules are available. The heat content of the natural gas is 1025 BTU per cubic foot.
The primary source of treated water in Northern Kentucky is the Northern Kentucky Water District, serving municipalities and unincorporated areas in Boone, Campbell, and Kenton counties.
The Northern Kentucky Water District draws raw water from the Ohio River and the Licking River. The total filter capacity is 54,000,000 gallons per day with an average daily consumption of 32,000,000 gallons.
Water delivery systems are installed and maintained by the various municipalities and water districts. Rates and storage capacities will vary with the final distributor. The quality of water is maintained throughout the three-county area.
Waste Water Services
The primary source of sewerage treatment service in Northern Kentucky is the Sanitation District No. 1, serving municipalities and unincorporated areas in Boone, Campbell, and Kenton counties.
The Sanitation District operates one secondary treatment facility with a design capacity of 46,500,000 gallons per day. Average daily flow is 32,000,000 gallons per day. Two other secondary treatment plants are planned to accommodate Northern Kentucky's sustained growth, one in western Boone County and one in eastern Campbell County.
Rates and surcharges are set by the Sanitation District. Several cities and Boone County levy additional charges for the maintenance of sewer lines within their limits.
