A Note for Users of the Kentucky Groundwater Data Repository (KGDR)

The online database for the KGDR has been completely redesigned. This change was implemented to streamline the input of future data uploads from the Kentucky Division of Water, which continues to be the primary contributor of data to the repository. Aside from the groundwater quality data and map services, most of these changes will be transparent to our users, but you will see some differences in how search results are presented. Users will now be able to download casing and lithology information for water wells (when available). The mapping functionality for water wells and springs has not changed, but will be updated soon.

The database is current through 2013 and will be updated regularly to include the most recent data from the Kentucky Division of Water.

If you have questions, comments, or suggestions, please contact Bart Davidson at the Kentucky Geological Survey (phone: 859.323.0524 or email:
