Water Management Council


WMC meeting on December 2, 2016

Established by KRS 151 and KRS 224A, the Council exists to coordinate water and wastewater system development statewide. Members include each county judge/executive, or his or her representative; one representative selected by each community public water and/or sewer system, as defined in 401 KAR 8:010 sec. 1(71)(a) that provides water and/or sewer service to persons in a city and/or county; one representative selected by a local health department in the county; and one representative selected by each city with a population equal to or greater than 1,000 based upon the most recent federal decennial census that is not a water supplier or distributor, unless that city chooses to be represented by another member of the planning council. Quarterly meetings give members the opportunity to coordinate plans and projects to avoid duplication of service, ensure consistency with local and regional land use plans, and promote cost-effectiveness.
