The Environmental Protection Agency will update residents tonight on the efforts to develop new pollution limits for the Floyds Fork watershed. This is the third time since August the agency has come to Louisville to discuss the project.

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 present a draft model of the watershed, and update stakeholders on the process.

The meeting is tonight at 7:00 at Eastern High School.
