The Kentucky Ag Water Quality Act seeks to protect surface and groundwater from pollution, particularly from agriculture and silviculture pollution. Landowners conducting agriculture or silviculture business on 10+ acres must establish a water quality plan based on the Kentucky Agriculture Water Quality Plan. Contact the extension office to learn more about water quality plans.
