The Kentucky River Authority was first established by the General Assembly in 1986 to take over the operation of the Kentucky River Locks and Dams 5 through 14 from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Following the drought of 1988, the Authority was given a mission to develop a long-range water resource plan and to protect and improve the waters of the Kentucky River through environmental management of the entire watershed. In particular, the Authority has the duty to "adopt administrative regulations protecting water in the Kentucky River basin; to develop and to implement comprehensive plans for protecting the water of the Kentucky River basin; and to collaborate with the Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Cabinet [Environmental and Public Protection Cabinetj and other state agencies in coordinating Kentucky River basin water resource and water quality activities."
