KY Agriculture Water Quality Act

What is the Agriculture Water Quality Act:

The Ag water Quality Act was passed by the Kentucky General Assembly in 1994. The act protects surface and groundwater resources from pollution from agriculture and silviculture practices.

Who is affected?

The act effects all landowners with 10 or more contiguous acres and who conduct agriculture or silvicluture operations on their land.

What must be implemented?

All landowners/land users with 10 or more acres of land that is used for agriculture or silviculture operations must develop and implement a water quality plan based on guidance from the Kentucky Agriculture Water Quality Plan.
