Enjoy swimming and paddling? Drinking clean water? Turning the lights on?

Kentucky’s 90,000 miles of surface rivers and waterways are to thank for much of the water we use every day. That’s why the City of Lexington, along with local community and civic organizations, are hosting Water Week, now through Saturday, March 23.

Throughout the week you can find free scheduled events hosted by locals, including:

  • Stream cleaning
  • Rain garden demonstrations
  • Tiny Tot Naturalist activities
  • Creek walks + more

There are also ways for you to participate at your own pace.
