Kentucky Agriculture Water Quality Act

The Kentucky Agriculture Water Quality Act protects surface and groundwater resources from pollution from agriculture and silviculture activities. The Act affects all landowners with 10 or more contiguous acres who conduct agriculture and silviculture operations on their land. Kentucky farmers can show their commitment to stewardship by developing and implementing a Kentucky Agriculture Water Quality Plan.

Resources on this site can help farmers assess their operation and identify best management practices to include in their Kentucky Agriculture Water Quality Plan.

Assistance to implement the plan can be obtained by contacting your local Conservation District Office or your local Cooperative Extension Service Office.
