The Bacon Creek Watershed Council is an award winning community group that has been working on behalf of Bacon Creek for over a decade. Bacon Creek starts in southern Larue County and eventually flows into the Nolin River over 30 river miles downstream. For most of its length, it flows through Hart County including the town of Bonnieville. Bacon Creek is part of the Upper Green River Basin.
The Bacon Creek Watershed Council sponsors creek clean-ups and celebrations that bring their community together for a great cause. They first met in April of 2001 and went on to obtain funding for the construction of a sewer line to Bonnieville. They were successful and eliminated over 100 straight pipes and failing septic systems! The Watershed Council, along with community stakeholders and partners including KWA, continue to work toward a cleaner, safer Bacon Creek.
