Floyd Forks Watershed Stakeholder Engagement

The Kentucky Water Resources Research Institute (KWRRI) promotes effective strategies for balancing Kentucky's economic development and environmental stewardship needs through successful watershed management. In 2011, the Kentucky Division of Water asked KWRRI to implement a stakeholder engagement process for the Floyds Fork watershed that would provide insights into a range of perspectives and community preferences regarding possible nutrient management strategies for use in the Floyds Fork Watershed. The Kentucky Division of Water is interested in acquiring a better understanding of the perspectives and desires of residents and other watershed stakeholders. The project is expected to involve interviews, stakeholder focus groups, and larger public meetings through which stakeholder preferences will be identified and quantified. A final project report is expected by June 2013.
