Watershed Friendly Stream Maintenance

The Kentucky Division of Water (KDOW) has created a ‘Watershed Friendly Stream Maintenance’ guide that helps answer questions such as “Do I need a permit?”

This guidance includes several publications that are intended to help people understand when a permit is required and what work they can do to maintain a stream without a permit.

See the following brochures, in PDF format, for information that we hope will help everyone in understanding what work can and cannot be done without a Floodplain Permit or a Water Quality Certification from KDOW.
