Floyds Fork


The Floyds Fork watershed is located in north-central Kentucky and drains portions of Henry, Oldham, Shelby, Jefferson, Spencer and Bullitt counties.  The entire watershed is 284 square miles which is more than 180,000 acres.  Current stream impairments in the watershed include nutrients, organic enrichment, dissolved oxygen, fecal coliform, sedimentation and aquatic plants.  Additionally, McNeely Lake is impaired by methylmercury.  TMDLs are under development for the fecal coliform, nutrients, organic enrichment and dissolved oxygen impairments.

This Web page provides information about current efforts in Floyds Fork including the Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) development process.  Meeting announcements and other educational documents will be posted to this site to inform and engage the public of the ongoing efforts to improve the health of the Floyds Fork watershed.
