2004-09 Developing Watershed Implementation Plans in Salt and Licking River Basin: A five year study with the Kentucky Waterways Alliance, Tetra Tech Inc., and the Kentucky Division of Water to develop watershed action plans in the Salt and Licking River basins. Project partners will meet to evaluate and refine the current Watershed Implementation Plan guide (WIP). Personnel from the University of Kentucky, Department of Landscape Architecture will revise and publish the WIP guide through research of current action plans and EPA guidelines. Dates: July 2004-July 2009; Funding: EPA Section 319/KYDOW ($595,000) Primary Investigator: Judith Peterson, Kentucky Waterways Alliance; Co-Investigator: Barry W. Kew, Department of Landscape Architecture, University of Kentucky 2004-09 Creating a formula for success in the Kentucky River Basin: This five year contract is built upon earlier river basin and NPS studies to encourage sustainable watershed management by engaging local citizens and interagency representatives in developing local watershed implementation plans that will identify ways and possible funding sources to mitigate water quality issues. Working with Kentucky’s Division of Water, the Kentucky Waterways Alliance, and other environmental consultants, the investigator will develop a watershed action set of guidelines for communities to use as a model in developing watershed action plans.
Dates: July 2004-July 2009; Funding Source: contract from above grant ($165,000). Primary Investigator:
Barry W. Kew, Department of Landscape Architecture, University of Kentucky 2002 Knox County Master Plan Initiative 2001-2002: An office was opened on the town square in downtown Barbourville, KY to facilitate the establishment of critical community contacts between the citizens of Knox County and the primary investigator and research assistants. Team members, which included four fourth year landscape architectural students from the University of Kentucky, a fourth year arts student from Berea College, two computer students from Union College, along with the primary investigator met with citizens as well as community interest groups to develop and understand the impact of a comprehensive master plan for Knox County. Over the course of two years the team traveled more than 10,000 miles throughout the county developing background research for the planning initiative. Dates: June 2001-Sept. 2002; Funding: Knox County Task Force ($38,000); Paper: Presented at CELA National Conference Syracuse, NY, 2002; Primary Investigator: Barry W. Kew, Department of Landscape Architecture, University of Kentucky
