Who We Are

Since 1993, Kentucky Waterways Alliance has been the only statewide organization focused on waterways in Kentucky. We work with communities on local watershed issues and advocate for better policies and programs at the state and national levels. With a mission to protect, restore, and celebrate Kentucky’s waterways, our work is making a difference in the quality of life for all Kentuckians.

Our mission is accomplished through four strategic goals:

  • Identify key places for protection on a local watershed level.
  • Carry out a statewide movement to protect Kentucky’s waterways through grassroots activism and large-scale awareness.
  • Work on behalf of communities and the promises laid out in the Clean Water Act by influencing public policy.
  • Build a strong and sustainable water network by promoting and supporting local watershed groups.

Our work is made possible by our members, supporters and partners who are all working toward the same ultimate goal – healthy waterways and healthy communities in Kentucky.
