New University Press of Kentucky publication, Water in Kentucky, is now available for purchase. The book, co-edited by Landscape Architecture Professor Brian Lee was released this summer. 

Recently featured in Morning Ag Clips, the book is an in-depth look at how water has shaped -- and continues to shape -- the Bluegrass State.

The article states, "The Bluegrass State is often recognized for the beauty of the Appalachian Mountains, its vast cave system and its magnificent forest, together boasting a biodiversity to rival any state in the nation. But none of these ecological wonders would be possible without the waters that course throughout the state. Lakes, springs and rivers have fostered growth in the Commonwealth for millennia, and water has shaped Kentucky from its initial settlements to its contemporary livelihood."

The book can be purchased the University Press of Kentucky and is available for purchase online.
