Johnson County, KY Section 202 Flood Risk Management Project

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Louisville District is working in close coordination with the Johnson County Fiscal Court and City of Paintsville officials on the Section 202 Johnson County Flood Risk Management Project, which is intended to reduce flood risk for the city of Paintsville, Kentucky. 

USACE is currently revising a portion of the approved plan. Quarterly public meetings will be held throughout the year (most likely via an online platform such as WebEx), to update the City and County residents of the project status. Once Rights of Entry (ROE) have been obtained for certain properties, residents can expect to see USACE and/or subcontractors accessing those properties in the next few months to conduct some additional investigations. We appreciate everyone’s help and look forward to meeting with everyone to answer any questions you may have. 

In the interim any questions or comments about the ongoing study can be sent to:
