Project Overview

The Curry’s Fork Watershed Plan addresses water quality impairments and restores streams in the 4 sub-watersheds within the Curry’s Fork watershed: Curry’s Fork [Hydrologic Unit Code (HUC) 05140102180140 and 05140102180120], North Curry’s Fork (HUC 05140102180100), South Curry’s Fork (HUC 05140102180110), and Asher’s Run (HUC 05140102180130). Located in Northern Kentucky (Oldham county), the waters do not meet water quality standards for Primary Contact Recreation (PCR; no...

The Curry’s Fork Watershed Plan addresses water quality impairments and restores streams in the 4 sub-watersheds within the Curry’s Fork watershed: Curry’s Fork [Hydrologic Unit Code (HUC) 05140102180140 and 05140102180120], North Curry’s Fork (HUC 05140102180100), South Curry’s Fork (HUC 05140102180110), and Asher’s Run (HUC 05140102180130). Located in Northern Kentucky (Oldham county), the waters do not meet water quality standards for Primary Contact Recreation (PCR; nonsupport) and Warm Water Aquatic Habitat (WAH; partial support) according to the 2008 Integrated Report to Congress on the Condition of Water Resources in Kentucky, Vol. III, 303(d) List of Surface Waters. Through the course of this project we intend to improve and protect water quality in the watershed, promote safe, healthy, and accessible waters for recreation and wildlife, utilize programs and practices to decrease potential flooding impacts, and develop a cost-effective Watershed Plan (WP). These goals will be met through implementation of Best Management Practices (BMPs) which will serve to prevent and/or reduce pollution that are tailored to the needs of each area. Outreach and education activities will be used to reach the general public and specific stakeholders about the WP and BMP implementation. This will include septic system care and maintenance education, practices to restore riparian buffers and protect the flood plain, erosion reduction, and storm water runoff reduction. Evaluation of the effectiveness of the project will be accomplished through regular monitoring and assessments. A Watershed Coordinator will be engaged to act as a link between all involved/responsible parties and provide regular updates on progress

Project Results

The education and outreach opportunities will enable landowners and producers in the Curry’s Fork Watershed to better understand the dynamics of their watershed and the importance of nutrient reduction, erosion control, and storm water runoff control. It will serve to teach stakeholders how stream health directly impacts them. The pollutant load reductions will result in improvements and if possible de-listing of the impaired sections of Curry’s Fork, making it usable for ...
