pollution

A southwestern Kentucky river is set to undergo testing and farmers and businesses could face more restrictions in an effort to reduce river pollution depending upon the result. The United States Geological Survey will test the Little River, which runs through Trigg and Christian counties and flows into Lake Barkley.

With the help of an EPA grant, the Kentucky Division of Water plans to study about two hundred private water wells in the Commonwealth.  The study will focus on how domestic water wells are impacted by events of nature and by human-influenced pollution.
