Numerous publications, posters and maps have been prepared regarding groundwater quality in Kentucky. The scope and detail of these reports vary with the specific topics and regions discussed.
The Kentucky Karst Atlas Maps show karst spring basins that were determined primarily by groundwater tracer studies. These maps are designed for regional and preliminary hydrogeologic investigation, and can be used to quickly identify karst basins and the springs to which a site may drain. The maps also serve as a geographic index to literature on karst investigations in each area. All tracer data displayed are available as GIS files that can be downloaded from the Kentucky Geography Network.
