CommentsThis is a small tributary of Owsley Fork in Radford Hollow and flows into Owsley Fork Reservoir, the main drinking water supply for Berea, KY. The entire area is forested with little current disturbance, although there were several farms in the hollow before the reservoir was created. There is some agriculture on the top of the ridge. On this day, the creek was very, very low - barely running between pools. The pool tested is about 1/4 mile upstream from where the creek passes under the old, unused road.
