Descripción

Home to sprawling Appalachian forests rolling prairies and the longest cave system in the world Kentucky is among the most ecologically diverse states in the nation. Lakes rivers and springs have shaped and nourished life in the Commonwealth for centuries and water has played a pivotal role in determining Kentucky's physical cultural and economic landscapes. The management and preservation of this precious natural resource remain a priority for the state's government and citizens. In this generously illustrated book experts from a variety of fields explain how water has defined regions across the Commonwealth. Together they illuminate the ways in which this resource has affected the lives of Kentuckians since the state's settlement exploring the complex relationship among humans landscapes and waterways. They examine topics such as water quality erosion and sediment control and emerging water management approaches. Through detailed analysis and case studies the contributors offer scholars practitioners policy makers and general readers a wide perspective on the state's valuable water resources.
