Many landowners and small enterprises, including local governments, routinely obtain gravel from creeks and streams for road maintenance and fill. While this is an inexpensive way to obtain gravel, it also is illegal. Kentucky regulations clearly require anyone (including governments) to obtain a permit from the Department for Natural Resources before removing gravel from a creek. Anyone found doing so without a permit is subject to citation and fines of up to $5,000 per day.
