The Paducah McCracken Joint Sewer Agency (JSA) was formed on July 1, 1999, to take over the operation and maintenance of Paducah and McCracken County’s combined sanitary and storm sewer system and sanitary-only sewer system.
The JSA is responsible for a large wastewater collection and treatment network, including:
The JSA is a non-profit regional utility service. Our revenue comes from wastewater treatment fees, plus charges for extending wastewater lines and connecting new customers.
All of the agency's revenue is used for operation, maintenance, extension and improvement of services.
The JSA performs location services for excavations within our service area. If you wish to excavate in our area, you may call our office at (270) 575-0056. You will be directed to submit your utility location request via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Kentucky's BUD requirements related to excavation notification and marking can be found within the Kentucky Revised Statutes (KRS) at KRS 367.4905 through KRS 367.4917.
The JSA is governed by a seven-member board. Three members are appointed by the Paducah City Commission, three members are appointed by the McCracken County Fiscal Court, with the final member selected jointly by both commissions. Members serve four-year overlapping terms and can be reappointed. The full Board meets once monthly on the fourth Thursday at 5 PM.
