Licking River Watershed Watch Inc.
The Licking River Watershed Watch works to protect, improve, and restore the waters of the Licking River Basin by promoting water quality monitoring, public education, and citizen action.

Water Quality Monitoring

LRWW Volunteers collect water quality samples from over 130 stations throughout the 22 county watershed using field equipment, collecting samples for laboratory analysis and direct observations. Join us if you would like to become a certified sampling volunteer.

Public Education

In the Spotlight:

On 4-22-22 in coorperation with Friends of Stoner Creek, LRWW set up an information display at the Paris Art Walk festival. Attached is a photo of the LRWW display. The Friends of Stoner Creek, has an Art contest, of work submitted by Bourbon Co. 6th graders, addressing awareness, protection of Stoner Creek and the need for clean water. The students do art after clean water education classes presented by Bluegrass Greensource. Festival goers are asked to view the work and vote for their pick of the two works they like. During this time FOSC and LRWW members discussed our activities. Over 300 people came through the door to view the art.
