Floyds Fork Watershed Nutrient Management Survey

Please take the time to complete the survey below. The survey is fairly straight forward and should take between 15-25 minutes to complete. This is extremely important to the Building Industry because these nutrient management strategies outlined in this survey will be used to determine the implementation plan for the Total Maximum Daily Load in the Floyds Fork Watershed.

The strategies are broken down into broad categories which are wastewater strategies, agricultural strategies, urban strategies, and policy strategies. As members of the Building Industry, you will likely be able to quickly determine for yourself which specific strategies within each category you would most prefer. However, please consider the following as you respond to this survey:

  • The Building Industry strongly supports the building of a regional sanitary sewer.
  • Green Infrastructure and other storm water run-off mitigation policies are in effect in Jefferson County; however, the four other counties in the watershed do not have the same policies at this time. These strategies can add cost.
  • There are currently policies in place in Jefferson County that work to achieve some of the nutrient management that is desired to comply with the TMDL. Those policies include overlay districts and conservation subdivision regulations, among others. The other four counties in this watershed do not have these same types of policies today.

About the Floyds Fork Nutrient Management Study:
The Kentucky Water Resources Research Institute at the University of Kentucky has been leading a stakeholder engagement process involving members of the Floyds Fork community over the last two years. The objective of the process is to identify community preferences for different strategies or best management practices for use in minimizing nutrient impacts to Floyds Fork.

Here is the link for the project website:

During the summer of 2013, three separate public meetings were held in which stakeholders were asked to provide preferences for 20 different management strategies that had been suggested by members of the community. They have now developed an on-line survey to allow community members who were not able to attend one of public scoring meetings, to register their preferences online.

Thissurvey is part of  the Floyds Fork Stakeholder Engagement Project which is being administered by Kentucky Water Resources Research Institute and funded by the Kentucky Division of Water.
