  • Contract awarded for Green River Dam Stilling Basin work

    The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Louisville District recently awarded a contract for minor maintenance work to the stilling basin at the tailwater of Green River Dam in Campbellsville, Kentucky. This is the point of water release from the dam and therefore, the project will require a 24-hour complete shutdown of dam operations as crews work to get a bypass piping system set up. Once the bypass piping system is set up, water flow will resume. This one-day shutdown is typical when normal maintenance is performed. Work is expected to begin by mid-October and be complete by mid-November. The dam is safe and operating as designed. This work is routine in nature and entails concrete repairs to the stilling basin. The work will not cause any significant impacts to the public and there should be sufficient flow in Green River to meet water supply demand during the duration of the shutdown and construction period. Any questions concerning the upcoming work can be directed to the Green River Lake Office at (270) 465-4463.
