Established in 1965, West Shelby Water District (WSWD) provides potable water to over 1,850 customers in western Shelby County.
With no internal water supply of its own, West Shelby purchases all of its water. Originally all of the water came from the City of Shelbyville, Kentucky, whose source is the Guist Creek Reservoir. Due to population growth in the 1980's throughout the District, an additional source of water was established in 1990. This source was the Louisville Water Company that obtains its water from the Ohio River.
