The Kentucky River Basin is a large and varied landscape, from the Appalachian mountain region of its headwaters in southeastern Kentucky, through the knobs and palisades of central Kentucky, to the floodplains of the Ohio River.
Many of our sampling areas have progressed from backyard sampling to federally approved watershed improvement plans with associated funding. provides technical and staff support• From a hill in Letcher County nearly 3,200 feet above sea level, the Kentucky River descends from the Eastern Kentucky Coal Field, Knobs and Bluegrass Regions to the Ohio River at 420 feet above sea level.
Stream biology and habitat are studied each June. provide technical and other assistance• If desired, samplers also receive supplies for assessing stream biology and habitat. Each river basin includes all of the land drained by many streams, creeks and springs that flow downhill into one another, eventually forming rivers. Along the way, the Kentucky River captures flow from the major tributaries of the Red River, Dix River, Elkhorn Creek and Eagle Creek. The Kentucky River Basin encompasses nearly 7,000 square miles in 41 counties and contain 16,000 miles of stream.
Sampling Volunteers - KRWW is supported by over 200 active volunteers who give their time to improve our waterways through skills development, water quality monitoring, community outreach and education and water improvement efforts. Click to learn more about our larger organization. Kentucky is divided into 7 major river basins, including the Kentucky River Basin. Watershed Watch in Kentucky - This statewide organization coordinates volunteer water monitoring across Kentucky. Partners - KRWW could not do its work without the critical support from our major partners.
