A baker's dozen of interpretive signs have been installed at Prestonsburg Community College. The thirteen signs cover watershed stewardship topics that are important to improving water quality.

Public awareness and public involvement in water improvement efforts are two of the goals promoted by the signs. These signs meet National Park service standards and were manufactured by Paris Signs of Kenova, W. Va. The Kentucky Division of Water funded the signs through the EPA 319(h) grant program.

The Big Sandy Resource Conservation and Development Area provided technical assistance in the design and placement of the signs. The City of Prestonsburg, with assistance from the college maintenance staff, did the actual installation of the signs.

The signs include an invitation to join the local Big Sandy Watershed Watch group and help with water monitoring and clean-up efforts.
