Apartment complexes can have a tremendous effect on water quality in Lexington. Many of the problems surrounding water quality are due to stormwater run-off coming from rain and snow melt washing pollutants and litter into our streams and creeks. Other problems arise from materials being improperly disposed of.
Every apartment complex in Fayette County, and across the country is located in a watershed. A watershed is the area of land where all of the water that is under it or drains off of it
goes into the same place.
In Fayette County, there are 9 watersheds. Click on the map to the left and find out out which watershed your apartment complex is located in.
Almost all watersheds in Fayette County are considered impaired - which means they can no longer support their intended use, such as fishing, recreation, or swimming. Become a water partner and help improve Fayette County's waterways.
