Protecting the land, water, and people of the commonwealth of Kentucky is the responsibility of all citizens. You are the frontline of defense for clean water and a healthy environment. Federal and state mining laws give you options and power as citizens to help enforce the law. One way to do this is through a citizen complaint. If you see something - REPORT IT. Don't assume someone else is taking care of it.
