Drill Samples - Generation and Storage

The Kentucky Geological Survey's Well Sample Library maintains catalogues of drill cuttings of wells strategically located throughout Kentucky. If the samples are requested by the Survey, the well permit will be stamped accordingly. The operator shall deposit the samples at the nearest collection facility provided by the Survey.
