WKU Center for Water Resource StudiesThe water management planning process was formed under Senate Bill 409 to promote water planning throughout Kentucky. The fifteen Area Development Districts in Kentucky were selected to create Water Management Planning Councils for the purpose of regional planning. The Area Development Districts manage water management planning activities within their respective counties with the assistance of the Kentucky Infrastructure Authority, local utilities, and other state and local agencies.

Water Resource Information System

The water management planning process is supported by the Water Resource Information System (WRIS). The WRIS contains information about water and wastewater systems, existing infrastructure, and planned projects. The Kentucky Infrastructure Authority maintains the WRIS.

The most important projects in the region are prioritized to be eligible for funding. Prioritized projects are ranked based upon criteria such as households served, economic development, local need, and regional impact.

LCADD Regional Water Management Planning Council

The LCADD Regional Water Management Planning Council is comprised of local elected officials from each county as well as a representative from each local health department and each community public water and/or sewer system. The LCADD Regional Water Management Planning Council’s goal is to address topics related to water management planning, water/wastewater funding, and setting project priorities.

The LCADD Regional Water Management Planning Council meets quarterly to vote on approval of new project profiles and revisions to project profiles, assign WRIS project profile numbers to approved project profiles, and discuss planning issues. The LCADD Regional Water Management Planning Council also approved the creation of the LCADD Regional Water Management Planning Council Sub-Committee. The LCADD Regional Water Management Planning Council Sub-Committee meets monthly (as needed) to vote on approval of new project profiles and revisions to project profiles and to assign WRIS project profile numbers to approved project profiles.
