In March 2009, Kentucky Division of Water (DOW) became the primary data steward for Kentucky's portion of the National Hydrography Dataset (NHD). The NHD is a comprehensive set of digital spatial data representing the surface water of the United States using common features such as lakes, ponds, streams, rivers, canals and oceans. These data are designed to be used in general mapping and in the analysis of surface water systems using geographic information systems (GIS). In mapping, the NHD is used with other data themes such as elevation, boundaries and transportation, to produce general reference maps.

James Seay, DOW's geoprocessing specialist, will take the lead in Kentucky for conducting NHD data stewardship. DOW invites the public to complete a user survey, to help us be responsive to your needs.

Contact James.Seay@ky.gov to learn more about NHD stewardship or to report an error with the NHD.
