FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky Public Service Commission has authorized abandonment of Bullitt Utilities sewer system, which serves about 700 customers in the Hunters Hollow and Hillview areas of Bullitt County.

The abandonment is effective Sept. 30, and the PSC said Monday it will ask Franklin County Circuit Court to appoint a temporary operator, or receiver, to begin running the system before that.

The PSC said in a news release it intends to seek appointment of the Bullitt County Sanitation District because it offers the best chance for continued service.

The abandonment case is the third involving Bullitt Utilities before the PSC since the company’s Hunters Hollow wastewater treatment plant failed in 2014. The first two - an investigation into the adequacy of the service and a request for a surcharge to pay for new facilities - remain before the PSC.
