In recognition of "National Protect Your Groundwater Day"
Sponsored by the National Groundwater Association
The Kentucky Geological Survey (KGS) will sponsor a field trip to see firsthand the karst groundwater basin work currently being conducted in the Cane Run Watershed of Fayette and Scott Counties. We will meet at the Survey's Well Sample and Core Library on Iron Works Pike at 10:00 a.m. to see a short presentation on the Cane Run project. We will then board vehicles and travel to Georgetown to see Royal Spring, the city’s principal aquifer. Following that, we will proceed to the Kentucky Horse Park to view the KGS karst monitoring station installed in an underground limestone conduit that feeds groundwater directly to Royal Spring. A down-hole well camera will be demonstrated, weather permitting.
