Guardsmen aid in water shortage
Bottles of water sit outside the Kentucky National Guard Amory in Marion, Ky., as they will be handed out to local residents dur to the water shortage July 1, 2022. Soldiers from units within the 149th Maneuver Enhancement Brigade began transporting water from the Trade Water River to Old City Lake, near Marion. Army Palletized Load System (PLS) vehicles transported non-potable storage tanks daily with the goal of moving up to 80,000 gallons of water to the reservoir to minimize decreasing lake concerns. In addition, bottled water was also distributed at the Old Marion Armory to town residents.
