​Public Notices

The Division of Water (DOW) provides a public notice process for Kentucky Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (KPDES) and other wastewater permits, Water Quality Certifications (WQC), State Planning and Environmental Assessment Reports (SPEARs) and environmental findings associated with State Revolving Fund (SRF) funded projects through documents for Findings of No Significant Impact (FONSI). 
DOW provides interested parties and citizens an interactive public notice process. Features of this new process include the following:
  • A web-based searchable system that provides daily updates on actions being public noticed by Department for Environmental Protection.
  • E-mail notification to those interested parties listed on DOW's public notice distribution lists for each draft KPDES permit being public noticed.
  • A unique e-mail address for submission of comments by interested parties.
These website improvements will allow the public to search by a variety of criteria including agency interest number, agency interest name, county, municipality and type milestone change.
