Health Department shuts down KFC, Taco Bell location in Tompkinsville for sanitary violations 8/14/2014 Plumbing not properly installed or maintained; anti-siphonage or backflow prevention device not provided where required; equipment or floor not properly drained; sewage disposal system in disrepair or not functioning properly.

A broken section of an 8-inch water line located on East Girard Avenue caused water pressure in parts of the water system to drop to dangerously low levels. When this occurs, a potential health hazard may exist in these areas of zero pressure from backflow and/or back-siphonage of water of unknown quality into the water distribution system.
