Cane Run Watershed drains northern Lexington from New Circle Road through Lexmark and UK's Cold Stream Farm, past the Kentucky Horse Park. Underground elements of the watershed flow to Royal Spring in Georgetown with surface flows entering North Elkhorn Creek downstream of Great Crossing. The watershed involves both urban and rural landscapes and serves as a water supply for our homes, farms and wildlife. (Map of watershed)

Cane Run has been selected by the State Watershed Framework Process as one of five priority watersheds in Kentucky for restoration and management. We hope you will join us in this multi year effort in making Cane Run a showcase for watershed improvements.
