Abstract

An inventory of the water resources of a 240-square-mile area in north-central Kentucky is reported. It includes water distribution, chemical quality, water use, and principles of water occurrence and availability, and references. Nolin River is the only major stream in the area. Two of its tributaries, Valley Creek and North Fork Nolin River, have water withdrawn for public supply by Elizabethtown and Hodgenville. The quality of the water from the streams is typical of a limestone terrane. Ground water is also used for public supplies by Elizabethtown and Hodgenville and by two industrial plants. Many springs have flows of more than 0.25 cubic foot per second. Except for stock water, only three springs serve as a water source. Water from wells and springs is typical of limestone terrane.
