Water Resource Development
Governor Paul Patton's Executive Order 96-1339 directed the Water Resource Development Commission (WRDC) to prepare a strategic plan for water resource development in Kentucky. The goal of the plan is to provide the best available water and sewer service to every Kentuckian by the year 2020. The Division of Water was charged with administering sections of KRS 151 and KRS 224A and 401 KAR 4:220 pertaining to water supply planning. These statues and regulations were promulgated in the 1990s and established the requirements for source water assessments and long-range county water supply planning programs. The Kentucky Area Development Districts (ADDs), in conjunction with local units of government, water and wastewater systems, and the Kentucky Infrastructure Authority (KIA), have been critical in the planning process.
