Evaluation of Existing Ground-Water Quality Data in the Upper and Lower Cumberland, Tennessee, Green, and Tradewater River Basins and the Jackson Purchase Region

Contact: Stephen Fisher

Inorganic solutes, nutrients, pesticides, and other synthetic organic chemicals in ground water from the western and southern regions of Kentucky (basins of the upper and lower Cumberland, Tennessee, Green, and Tradewater Rivers, and the Jackson Purchase Region) are being mapped and summarized to determine ground-water quality within these major river basins and to identify possible impacts of nonpoint-source pollution. The investigation is being conducted in cooperation with the Groundwater Branch, Kentucky Division of Water. Resulting reports will also be combined with ongoing studies of surface-water quality being conducted by the Division of Water.
