Neighbors United for South Elkhorn Creek
Working to improve our watershed through community involvement in its waterways, wetlands, greenways, ponds, springs, karst systems, and streamside habitat
As the Bluegrass area grows new developments are required to provide for greenways and buffers for streams wetlands and floodplains. These green spaces are managed by a wide variety of entities, City Parks, City Stormwater Authorities, Neighborhood Associations and private property owners.
Our group is working with resource management agencies and individuals to carry out the provisions articulated in state and local regulations and published management plans. work to involve our neighbors in helping with that management work, and in understanding the function and value of our riparian buffers, waterways and greenways.

What we are doing
Neighbors United for South Elkhorn Creek conducts water quality monitoring in cooperation with the Kentucky Division of Water and Kentucky River Watershed Watch. We have trained volunteers monitoring at 8 stations in the watershed.
We are currently focusing our work in the neighborhoods of the Headwaters of South Elkhorn between Stone Road, Fayette Mall, Brannon's Crossing, Clays Mill Road, Man-O-War, and Harrodsburg Road, but not limited to those areas.
