STORMwater-StormDrain_MURAL-WEBThe Path of Water Trail:   This project, an installation of street art created by local residents to enhance environmental awareness in downtown Georgetown, is a collaboration between the City of Georgetown, Bluegrass Greensource,  the Scott County Arts Consortium, and the Scott County Public Library.  The aim is to remind Georgetown residents of what is impacted by anything that is found traveling down the stormdrains.

Layout example for 2017 Stormwater drain "The Path of Water" community mural contest.

Cane Run, a surface stream that heads in east-central Lexington-Fayette County and extends into Scott County, drains a total area of approximately 6,070 hectares.  Near the Scott-Fayette County line, the surface flow of Cane Run is pirated by series of swallow holes that are hydraulically connected to the main karst conduit of Big Spring / Royal Spring, the source of municipal water for Georgetown, Kentucky.

In addition to pollutants from Cane Run, these 22 storm drains flow directly into Royal Spring Run at Royal Spring Park in downtown Georgetown.  The path of these waters continue on to join other major waterways on which Georgetown residents rely for recreation and education.
