Ag water-quality plan meeting tomorrow

RICHMOND — In 1994, the Kentucky General Assembly passed the Kentucky Agriculture Water Quality Act.

The goal of the act is to protect surface and groundwater resources from pollution from agriculture and silviculture (forestry) activities.

The Agriculture Water Quality Act requires all landowner/land users with 10 or more acres that is being used for agriculture or silviculture operations to develop and implement a water-quality plan based on guidance from the Kentucky Agriculture Water Quality Plan.

If you fit the above category and have not recently updated your water-quality plan, or have never created one, make plans to attend our meeting 6 p.m. Thursday at the Madison County Extension Office on Duncannon Lane

Amanda Gumbert, University of Kentucky Extension Water Quality Liaison, will discuss changes to the Kentucky Ag Water Quality Act and describe the process for creating or updating your plan.

Tim Edwards with “Friends of Muddy Creek” will give an update on the Muddy Creek Watershed impairment status and share with us some tips for protecting these environmentally sensitive areas.

Make plans to attend this important meeting. This information directly affects your farming operation.

Eligibility for CAIP funds in 2014 may be contingent upon verification that a Kentucky Ag Water Quality Act Plan or a Self-Certification Form for the farm is on file with the Madison County Conservation District Office.

A sponsored meal will be served. Please call 623-4072, so we will have enough food.

Educational programs of the Cooperative Extension Service serve all people regardless of race, color, age, sex, religion, disability or national origin.
