Fourth Floyds Fork Meeting Tomorrow

The Environmental Protection Agency will update residents tomorrow evening on the efforts to develop new pollution limits for the Floyds Fork watershed.

Floyds Fork has been designated as “impaired,” which means its waterway can’t fulfill its designated functions. The state Division of Water has asked the EPA to help determine the maximum amount of pollution that can be discharged into the watershed without exceeding the state water quality standard.

At the meeting, the EPA will update stakeholders on the process. With the Kentucky Division of Water, the agency is still in the process of developing the final model for the watershed. Officials have also begun reaching out to people in the community to gather as much information as possible.

The meeting is tomorrow at 7:00 at Middletown Elementary School.
