Surface Water Webinar

The Surface Water Monitoring webinar on January 19 from 3-4pm EST will be hosted on Zoom. Register here:


Kentucky Waterways Alliance is monitoring two sections of Beargrass Creek for evidence of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, because of their proximity to combined sewer overflow (CSO) sites near Big Rock Park and Joe Creason Park in Louisville, KY. During heavy rains sewer overflows occur when stormwater and wastewater combine and spill into local waterways. KWA in partnership with UofL is assessing if and how much viral material can be found in surface water and sediment near these CSO sites. Kentucky Waterways Alliance and UofL's School of Urban and Public Affairs are leading Co-Immunity's Surface Water Study. The team includes University of Louisville’s Sustainability Director Dr. Tamara Sluss and KWA intern, Cullen Hunter, who are testing surface water and sediment in Beargrass Creek for the presence of SARS-CoV-2.
