Kentucky may technically be a land-locked state, but it certainly does not lack in shoreline. Lake Cumberland alone, for example, has almost as much as our country’s entire Pacific coast, all 1,293 miles of it.
No state outside of Alaska has more streams and rivers, and our 1,500 miles of navigable waterways are double the length of our interstates.
In other words, we know water.
It was with that thought in mind that House and Senate leaders decided earlier this year to create a committee dedicated solely to our streams, rivers and lakes.
