2021 KY EXCEL Beacon Awards Announced

The Kentucky Department for Environmental Protection is proud to recognize and encourage environmental excellence in the Commonwealth in variety of ways. One way is through its Kentucky Excellence in Environmental Leadership (KY EXCEL) Program. Members of KY EXCEL are committed to protecting and improving Kentucky’s environment, and through the KY EXCEL Beacon Awards we would like to recognize exemplary efforts and activities which were provided in the KY EXCEL Project Reports submitted in 2020 for projects which were proposed in 2019. One award is awarded for each of the following project categories: Conservation, Environmental Education, Pollution Prevention and Waste Reduction.

The 2021 KY EXCEL Beacon Award in Conservation goes to the Maker’s Mark Distillery in Loretto. Conservation refers to actions that protect natural habitat, promote native species or improve a natural resource. This includes helping to ensure there will be plenty of white oaks for generations to come. To do just this, Maker’s Mark partnered with the University of Kentucky and Independent Stave Company to collect tissues samples from a White Oak Tree on the distillery’s grounds. These tissues samples are being used to completely map and sequence the genome of white oaks based off this reference tree which will assist in future genetic testing. Additionally, Maker’s Mark is planting a White Oak Repository.  As the first of its kind, the repository will act like seed bank for a variety of white oaks which will assist the sustainability of this vital resource.

The 2021 KY EXCEL Beacon Award in Environmental Education goes to the Kentucky National Energy Education Development (KY NEED) Project. Environmental education refers to actions that promote a better understanding of Kentucky’s environment. This includes fostering energy awareness and environmental stewardship. During the 2019- 2020 school year, KY Need held a series of professional development workshops for Kindergarten to twelfth grade teachers. These workshops covered the basics of energy with a special focus on solar. And each teacher that attended received NEED curriculum and a grade appropriate solar kit for their classrooms. Through the sponsorship provided by utility foundations, these teachers received a completely free hands on learning experience that they could apply in their classrooms.

The 2021 KY EXCEL Beacon Award in Pollution Prevention goes to Kentucky American Water in Lexington. Pollution Prevention refers to actions that reduce, eliminate, or prevent pollution prior to recycling, treatment or disposal. This includes something as simple as using a refillable bottle instead of a single use plastic bottle. Kentucky American Water did just this by providing funds to Fayette County Public Schools for the purpose of purchasing water bottle refilling stations for 15 different schools. Thanks to this funding, all public schools in Fayette County now have a water bottle refilling station. Thus ensuring easy access to healthy hydration for teachers and students while preventing waste from ever being created. As an added bonus, these units provide a touch-free water fountain thus reducing the spread of germs and increasing public health.

The 2021 KY EXCEL Beacon Award in Waste Reduction goes to Toyota Motor Manufacturing Kentucky in Georgetown. Waste reduction refers to actions that help cut down on the amount of trash that would otherwise be disposed of or discarded. This includes recycling industrial wastewater. Phase 1 of Toyota Motor Manufacturing Kentucky’s two year project comprised of installing a small microbiological reactor as a pilot unit to test the feasibility of treating and making its industrial wastewater reusable in some of its processes. Throughout the trial, the quality of the waste produced by pilot unit was monitored to verify that the recycled water could be reused. This monitoring revealed that their original expectations were exceeded. Currently in phase 2 of this project, Toyota Motor Manufacturing Kentucky is refining the process and designing a full scale system.

Beacon Award winners are members of KY EXCEL who exemplified excellence in separate fields of environmental leadership. To view short videos about each of the 2021 Beacon Award Winners, or to learn more about the benefits of being KY EXCEL member click here. Congratulations again to Marker’s Mark Distillery, KY NEED Project, Kentucky American Water and Toyota Motor Manufacturing Kentucky on their well-deserved Beacon Awards.

Permits Required for Flood-Damaged Properties Located in Floodplains

Widespread flooding across Kentucky in recent weeks has left many residents with damaged property that is in immediate need of cleanup and repair. Property owners are encouraged to begin cleanup, debris removal, and mold remediation as quickly as possible, however before reconstruction of residential structures can begin, permits are required from the Kentucky Division of Water (DOW) and local entities.

To help accelerate the process and decrease the cost to residents, the DOW is waiving an applicant’s public notice requirement, and is expediting reviews of applications.

Applications can be submitted to the Floodplain Management Section of the DOW, 300 Sower Boulevard Frankfort, KY 40601 or by email to DOWFloodplain@ky.gov.

Permit applicants can help by providing their email address, phone number, mailing address, damaged property address and property latitude and longitude, as well as a description of the repairs to be conducted on the application.

Applicants also must provide an estimate of the cost of repairs and the pre-damage valuation of the structure to be repaired (less land value). This can be obtained online from the county property valuation administrator (PVA) or from a real estate appraiser.

To learn more about flooding and flood hazards, please contact your local floodplain coordinator or visit the Energy and Environment Cabinet website for more information.

Gov. Beshear: Debris Disposal Grant Funding Available for Qualifying Counties after Flooding

FRANKFORT, Ky. (March 25, 2021) – Governor Andy Beshear and Kentucky Energy and Environment Cabinet (EEC) Secretary Rebecca Goodman announced that grants up to $25,000 are available to qualifying counties for flood debris cleanup.

Grants will be made available to the 48 counties with declared states of emergency associated with March flooding and can be used to cover the cost of collecting, transporting and disposing of municipal solid waste resulting from flooding.

Gov. Beshear declared a state of emergency Feb. 28 and deployed state resources to help afflicted areas. He later visited and pledged assistance to areas hardest hit by recent rains.

“Many counties across the commonwealth were devastated by these floods, and some had been impacted by ice storms right before the flooding, too,” Gov. Beshear said. “I want to make sure that on Team Kentucky, no one gets left behind during a challenge like this. We still have a long way to go, but we are happy to provide resources to these communities to help with their initial recovery efforts.”

Kentuckians affected by recent flooding are urged to be safe and environmentally conscious when cleaning and disposing of material. Potential hazards include asbestos, mold and toxic chemicals.

“We encourage all eligible counties to take advantage of this opportunity to assist in the removal and proper disposal of municipal solid waste associated with the recent flooding,” Secretary Goodman said.

Counties eligible for funding include: Adair, Anderson, Breathitt, Boyd, Butler, Calloway, Carter, Casey, Clark, Clay, Cumberland, Edmonson, Elliott, Estill, Fayette, Floyd, Franklin, Graves, Green, Greenup, Jackson, Jessamine, Johnson, Knott, Laurel, Lawrence, Lee, Leslie, Letcher, Lincoln, Madison, Magoffin, Martin, Menifee, Metcalfe, Morgan, Owen, Owsley, Perry, Pike, Powell, Pulaski, Rockcastle, Spencer, Todd, Trigg, Wolfe, and Woodford.

Funding for the cleanup comes from the Kentucky Pride Fund, through a $1.75 environmental remediation fee for each ton of garbage disposed of at Kentucky municipal solid waste disposal facilities. The Kentucky Division of Waste Management administers the fund.

Storm debris handling guidance and additional resources can be found on the EEC website. Information is also available regarding the disposal of items such as livestock carcasses, 55-gallon drums or tanks, and for the cleanup of waterways. Please note that the preferred method for managing woody or vegetative debris is by composting, shredding or chipping for reuse as mulch.

Kentuckians should contact their local solid waste coordinator to learn if debris will be picked up curbside or if debris must be taken to a designated location.

Kentucky restricts open burning. Burning is permitted only in limited circumstances and under specific conditions. The burning of household trash other than uncoated paper products is illegal year-round.

A Kentucky Floods Cleanup Hotline has also been set up (800-451-1954) for  services including clearing trees; removal of drywall, flooring and appliances; tarping of roofs; and mold mitigation. Services are available through March 26 as resources allow.

Grant application packages will be emailed to eligible counties. For additional information, please contact Gary Logsdon at gary.logsdon@ky.gov or Lisa Evans at lisa.evans@ky.gov .

Facebook and General Motors Use the Sun to Power Facilities

RUSSELLVILLE, Ky.­ – Through the Tennessee Valley Authority’s nationally recognized Green Invest program, renewable energy continues to expand with plans to build the largest solar-plus-storage project in TVA’s Kentucky service area.

The new Logan County solar farm will provide Facebook’s regional data center operations with 145 megawatts of solar power and General Motors’ Bowling Green Assembly, exclusive home of the Chevrolet Corvette, with 28 megawatts of solar power.

Facebook’s investment helped enable the addition of 120 megawatt-hours of new battery storage technology that will increase the resilience of the power grid. TVA and Warren Rural Electric Cooperative Corporation are partnering with Nashville-based Silicon Ranch to develop the project.      

“Today’s announcement is the result of Facebook’s, General Motors’, and Warren RECC’s leadership and our joint, long-term commitment to renewable energy across the region,” said Chris Hansen, TVA vice president, Origination and Renewables. “TVA’s Green Invest program is bringing together customers and renewable energy partners who are all investing in our communities.” 

Since 2018, Green Invest has attracted nearly $2.7 billion in solar investment and procured over 2,100 megawatts of solar on behalf of its customers – maintaining TVA’s green energy leadership with the greatest amount of renewable generation in the Southeast.

The Logan County facility will look similar to Silicon Ranch’s 102.5 MWAC Bancroft Station Solar Farm in Early County, Georgia that supports Facebook’s renewable energy goals for its Newton Data Center.

“Renewable energy is something that more of our businesses want and something that makes Kentucky more competitive for jobs and investments,” said Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear. “Green Invest shows the benefits of TVA’s public power model as we transition to a cleaner energy future.”

Kentucky State Representative Jason Petrie believes the project will create valuable opportunities for local residents and businesses: “I am excited that Logan County has been chosen to serve as a provider of renewable energy. This project positions our entire region for economic development as the demand for renewable energy continues to increase.”

TVA signed a long-term power purchase agreement with Silicon Ranch to develop, own, operate and maintain the solar-plus-storage facility, which will foster significant capital investment in Logan County and spawn additional economic impacts for the surrounding area. Silicon Ranch plans to hire more than 450 workers and will emphasize hiring locally for the project’s construction, which is expected to begin in 2022 and be completed in fall of 2023, pending environmental reviews.

“The Tennessee Valley is our home, and Silicon Ranch is honored to be part of this compelling economic development story with TVA, Facebook, General Motors, and Warren RECC that demonstrates what’s possible when we work together with a shared vision for the entire region,” said Silicon Ranch Co-Founder and CEO Reagan Farr. “Thanks to the forward-thinking vision of our partners at TVA and the local power companies, Silicon Ranch is on pace to invest more than $1 billion across the Valley, and we are proud to expand this legacy to Logan County and the Commonwealth of Kentucky.”

Facebook is on track to support its global operations with 100% renewable energy, and this announcement is Facebook’s fifth renewable energy agreement with TVA. Facebook’s renewable commitments in the region now total 742 megawatts of solar and 80 megawatts of battery storage.

“Green Invest makes it possible for our operations in the Tennessee Valley to be supported by new solar energy constructed in the region,” said Urvi Parekh, head of Renewable Energy at Facebook. “This solar and storage facility, less than 50 miles from our Gallatin data center, will be Facebook’s first renewable energy project in Kentucky, which marks an important milestone for our global portfolio.”

In May, General Motors said it would use Green Invest to power its Spring Hill Manufacturing plant with 100% renewable energy, and solar energy from today’s announcement will help General Motors reach its goal to become carbon neutral in its products and operations by 2040. The solar facility is located only 30 miles from GM’s Bowling Green Assembly plant.

 “We are committed to sourcing 100% renewable energy for our U.S. operations by 2030,” said Kristen Siemen, GM chief sustainability officer. “Using our scale and relationships to increase renewable energy demand and availability in local communities will help create a future with zero emissions.”

TVA sees a bright future for solar fueling the region’s economy because it has increased its contracted solar capacity by 60% since October 2020.

“Warren RECC is committed to developing innovative solutions, and we are proud to be the first electric cooperative in the Tennessee Valley to sign a Green Invest agreement,” said Dewayne McDonald, Warren RECC president and CEO. “The Warren RECC service territory is an industry hub, and we continue to take bold steps to help make our community a competitive location for businesses, like GM, that are pursuing environmental goals.”

The Logan County facility will also feature Silicon Ranch’s holistic approach to land management, a model the company has trademarked as Regenerative Energy®. Under this unique platform, Silicon Ranch will restore the land to a functioning grassland ecosystem while keeping the property in agricultural production through managed sheep grazing. Key to this approach is managing the land based on close observations of soil, grass, and the water cycle, resulting in quantifiable ecological, economic, and social outcomes that are backed by a third-party verified standard.

The Tennessee Valley Authority is a corporate agency of the United States that provides electricity for business customers and local power companies serving nearly 10 million people in parts of seven southeastern states. TVA receives no taxpayer funding, deriving virtually all of its revenues from sales of electricity. In addition to operating and investing its revenues in its electric system, TVA provides flood control, navigation and land management for the Tennessee River system, and assists local power companies and state and local governments with economic development and job creation.

Gov. Beshear, Congressman Rogers Announce $14.2 Million in Grants for Eastern Kentucky Economic Development Projects

FRANKFORT, Ky. (March 22, 2021) – Gov. Andy Beshear and U.S. Rep. Harold “Hal” Rogers (KY-05) on Monday announced six economic development projects in five Appalachian counties have been selected for $14.2 million in Abandoned Mine Lands (AML) Pilot Program grants.

The projects, in Floyd, Harlan, Laurel, Morgan and Perry counties, range from the construction of water treatment plants to robotic instruction and will revitalize the coalfields in Kentucky’s Appalachian region through job creation and economic development. Since 2016, 54 projects in 21 counties have been selected for funding through the AML Pilot Program.

“These projects are creating good jobs, more opportunity and a healthier future for Eastern Kentuckians,” Gov. Beshear said. “These projects mean drinkable water, training and re-employment for those who have been laid off. For many of our people, the projects will mean more peace of mind and a fresh start when so many need it as we emerge from this pandemic, from devastating storms and from the downturn in the coal economy.”

“While this funding was designed to help our coal mining communities recover from the downturn of the coal industry, it will also serve as an essential resource as our rural Appalachian region recovers from the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Congressman Rogers. “These grants will help meet important needs in our region, from improving access to clean, reliable water to opening new opportunities for jobs in Southern and Eastern Kentucky.

“I appreciate the work of Gov. Beshear and Secretary Goodman to keep this program moving despite the challenges we have faced during the pandemic. Congratulations to all of our communities that have competitively earned these grants.”

The projects include:

  • $3.5 million to Perry County and the City of Hazard to improve the water systems of Perry County through the KY-15/KY-7 Interconnect and the development of a new Buckhorn Water Treatment Plant. The project will provide a reliable water source for 1,198 residential customers and 36 businesses in the Coal Fields Industrial Park that employ in excess of 370 people.
  • $3.769 million to BPM Lumber of Laurel County for the purchase and installation of an optimized merchandising system that will allow BPM to produce value-added hardwood lumber products. This will sustain 123 current jobs and allow for the re-employment of 62 employees at the London and Whitesburg locations who were previously laid off during the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • $400,000 to Backroads of Appalachia, a non-profit entity that supports job training and economic development through tourism and motorsports. Backroads will partner with local government and non-profit organizations to repurpose an abandoned mine land property in Harlan County into a welcome center to increase regional motorsports tourism in Lynch. As a second chance employer, Backroads employs individuals in local addiction recovery programs and provides them with job training and paid employment.
  • $3 million to fund the eKAMI Advanced Robotic Instruction Project in Morgan County. This project will build on eKAMI’s successful model of advanced CNC machining training by expanding instruction to include an advanced manufacturing robotics credential track for incarcerated individuals at the East Kentucky Correctional Complex in Morgan County.
  • $2.05 million to the City of Wheelwright and Floyd County for the construction of a new water treatment plant in Wheelwright that will replace an aging conventional sand filtration plant built in the 1930s. The new facility will assist in the re-opening of the Southeast Kentucky Correctional Center that closed in 2012.
  • $1.5 million to Harlan County Fiscal Court to bring natural gas infrastructure to the Harlan County Business Park project in Harlan County. This project will develop natural gas service for the Tri-Cities area of Harlan County and bring natural gas service to the Harlan County Business Park site on previously mined lands near Cumberland, Benham and Lynch. Harlan County Fiscal Court has worked to redevelop this site bringing new companies and up to 50 local jobs. The site has recently received certified Build-Ready status by the Kentucky Cabinet for Economic Development.

Perry County Water Project
“Growing opportunities could not be possible without our visionary leaders. Even though projects in our mountainous region are more difficult and costly to complete, our people deserve reliable water service in Appalachia,” said Perry County Judge/Executive Scott Alexander. “I’m thankful to have leaders at the state and federal levels that we can partner with, like Congressman Rogers and Gov. Beshear.” 

“The City of Hazard would like to thank Congressman Rogers, Gov. Beshear and Secretary Goodman for being champions for water projects in hard-hit pockets of our county,” said Hazard Mayor Donald “Happy” Mobelini. “These improvements are critical to provide vital access to our citizens, increase economic opportunity and improve infrastructure in Eastern Kentucky. We are forever grateful for the opportunity to continue to work together and fight for clean and reliable water systems for our region.”

Laurel County Projects
“On behalf of BPM’s employees, we want to thank Gov. Beshear and Congressman Rogers for making this award possible. This grant will bring the latest optimizing technology to Kentucky’s $13 billion hardwood industry,” said Richard Sturgill, chairman of BPM Lumber. “The coalfields are in desperate need of jobs and expanded industry. It is our hope that this investment will help fill that need.”

Lynch Motorsports Welcome Center Project
“I have always believed that you can take what you got and be successful with it, so we are using these funds to simply build on to a small building on an abandoned surface mine in Lynch to create a multi-purpose welcome center where we can kick off motorsports events,” said Erik Hubbard, director of Backroads of Appalachia. “Harlan County is one of the best places in the nation to explore the outdoors and this funding gives us the opportunity to bring the land back to life with tourists and local outdoor enthusiasts.”

eKami Project
“Thanks to this AML funding, eKAMI looks forward to Kentucky leading the way in criminal justice reform with the new workforce development project at Kentucky’s largest correctional facility, the Eastern Kentucky Correctional Complex in Morgan County,” said Kathy Walker, founder and CEO of eKAMI. “eKAMI’s innovative, hi-tech teaching model prepares offenders for high-skilled jobs in 21st century advanced manufacturing, paving the way for successful reentry for those so deserving of a second chance.”

Floyd County Water Project
“The residents of the city of Wheelwright would like to thank Congressman Rogers and Gov. Beshear for their work in expanding access to clean, reliable water for our residents and businesses,” said Floyd County Judge/Executive Robbie Williams. “Wheelwright is a small community, so we really appreciate our leaders who look out for us and advocate for funding that will help us continue to recover from losses in the coal industry.”

Harlan County Gas Project
“This investment of AML Pilot funds will check the last box required to make our business park in Harlan County the most competitive it can be to recruit new industries to our county. I am grateful to Congressman Rogers and Gov. Beshear for supporting the work of the Harlan County Economic Development Authority, One Harlan County, and Harlan County Fiscal Court as we move forward together united in our vision to create better economic opportunities for the people we serve,” said Harlan County Judge/Executive Dan Mosley. “This important infrastructure investment of AML Pilot funds, which will be combined with RDAAP funds previously awarded, now makes this project a reality and will greatly assist us in our economic diversification efforts.”

Energy and Environment Cabinet (EEC) Secretary Rebecca Goodman selected the projects for initial vetting by the U.S. Office of Surface Mining, Reclamation and Enforcement (OSMRE). More than 70 applications for funding in 2020 AML Pilot year were received by EEC’s Division of Abandoned Mine Lands.

“These projects are being initiated and developed by people who live and work in these communities,” Secretary Goodman said. “They have a stake in making their communities better and that is why these projects succeed.”

Information about the AML Pilot Program can be found at AMLPILOT or by contacting Justin Adams, Acting Director, Kentucky Division of Abandoned Mine Lands, 300 Sower Boulevard, Frankfort, KY 40601. Office: 606-594-4088, e-mail: Justin.Adams@ky.gov.
