WRIS Portal

What is the WRIS Portal?


The WRIS Portal has been developed through the cooperative efforts of water and wastewater treatment systems and local, regional and state agencies.  It is used by all these entities, and provides much of the information needed for all aspects of water planning and emergency management decision making.  The WRIS portal is designed to bring together information from a multitude of sources and display that information in one easy to use web application.  The Portal is linked to databases at the Kentucky Division of Water, Kentucky Department for Environmental Protection, Kentucky Department for Local Government, the Kentucky Public Service Commission, Kentucky Department of Education, Kentucky Department of Parks, KyWARN, and the Kentucky Infrastructure Authority.

WRIS Portal information originating from KIA is maintained by the Kentucky Area Development Districts by system visits they perform twice a year to each drinking water systems and wastewater treatment systems in the Commonwealth.
