Bath County, KY FAQs

About 77 percent of Kentucky’s bedrock, including in Bath County, is made up of limestone, shale, and sandstone. These minerals are water-permeable, leading to the formation of caves and sinkholes. The soil substructure in Bath ranges from a moderate degree of permeable bedrock in the county’s northeast to a low degree of permeability in the center and south. It’s wise to consult a geologist when considering buying a property in this area.

Check your property for shallow depressions or arch-shaped cracks. If you’re thinking of buying a property, ask the seller if any sinkholes have been filled. You can also check the foundation of the house for damage.

Standard homeowner insurance policies typically do not cover earth movement including sinkholes. While it is possible to insure your home against sinkholes in Kentucky, you would need to shop for an insurance company that is willing to provide such coverage.
