ROUGH RIVER LAKE, KY. — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Louisville District will host a public meeting to discuss the dam remediation project on the Rough River Lake Dam, Falls of Rough, Kentucky.
The meeting will be held:
Date: March 5, 2018
Time: 6-8 p.m. CENTRAL TIME
Place: Rough River State Resort Park Lodge,
450 Lodge Road, Falls of Rough, KY 40119
Room: Grayson and Breckinridge rooms
The meeting will include the Rough River Dam Remediation project status and a briefing on the remediation process. The next phase, which was scheduled to be advertised in December 2017, has been postponed pending the review and analysis of the project design to better address the project risk and increase the long-term effectiveness. The 2019 early drawdown to facilitate construction will not occur, and the likelihood of it being necessary is now significantly less. The upcoming phases of work will be discussed by dam safety experts and include cost and schedule.
Opening remarks by Diane Stratton, Rough River Lake park manager
