Martin County, Kentucky is in the middle of a dire water crisis, and an immediate solution is far from over. Since December 15, many citizens of Martin County have seen their water restricted to just ten hours a day, with some having no water whatsoever. Even before the water shortage, the overall quality of water has been horrible in the area. Back in 2000, an environmental disaster occurred where a coal company allowed 306-million gallons of toxic sludge to enter the water supply, and things have been devastating ever since. Matt Jones and the Hey Kentucky! crew visited Martin County to interview several locals on the water crisis, and even reached out to public officials to find some answers. Take a look at their experience below: Watch the full episode and more Hey Kentucky! here:
