Water Quality Data and Reports

Data collected via the Louisville District Water Quality Program is assessed annually.  Data is compared to water quality criteria and standards established by state agencies.  If any exceedances of established water quality criteria occur, the Louisville District Water Quality Team reports this to the appropriate state regulatory agency. 

The Water Resources Development Act (WRDA 2007, Section 2017) requires the US Army Corps of Engineers to make water quality data available to the public.  The Water Quality Team has several reports available on this website.  If you are interested in other data, for which we don't have a standardized report, please don't hesitate to contact us.

You can request Louisville District water quality data by contacting the Water Quality Team and specifying what lake(s), what year(s), and what type of data in which you are interested.  To contact the Louisville District Water Quality Team, email louisvillewaterquality@usace.army.mil .

Ohio River Data

The Louisville District Water Quality Program partners with the Ohio River Valley Water Sanitation Commission (ORSANCO) and the US Geological Survey (USGS) to monitor water quality on the Ohio River. Through these partnerships we are able to collect biological, physical and chemical data along the 542 miles of the Ohio River that flows through the Louisville District area of responsibility. Contact ORSANCO and USGS for questions regarding data available for the Ohio River.
