The Hatfield-McCoy Feud is now infamous across the country thanks to the mini-series that aired in 2012.

Jim Currens and Mike Farwell go to work at the Kentucky Horse Park on a regular basis, but they’re not horse trainers. They’re hydrogeologists that work with the Kentucky Geological Survey to monitor groundwater in the Cane Run Watershed, which includes surface streams and underground water systems that run from north Lexington to the North Elkhorn Creek in Georgetown, Kentucky. They collect data at the Kentucky Horse Park - or, perhaps more accurately, from below the Kentucky Horse Park.
On December 1, 2011, the Kentucky Geological Survey at the University of Kentucky celebrated a major achievement in the mapping of Kentucky's geology. KGS has published all 25 maps in the 30 by 60 minute geologic map series (1:100,000 scale), making them available for free to the public on their website and through a new app.
This achievement is unparalleled by any other state, making Kentucky a leader in geologic mapping and map technology.
