LOUISVILLE, Ky, --
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is in the process of updating its 1961 Master Plan for Rough River Lake located in Falls of Rough, Kentucky.
A Master Plan is the document that conceptually establishes and guides the orderly development, administration, maintenance, preservation, enhancement, and management of all natural, cultural, and recreational resources of a Corps water resource project.
Public input is critical in the Master Plan update process. USACE Louisville District will be hosting a workshop to provide the public with an opportunity to comment. The public comment period will be open until Sept. 12, 2022.
