Metro Louisville, KY Feasibility Study

The Louisville Metro Feasibility Study is being completed in cooperation with the Louisville/Jefferson County Metropolitan Sewer District (MSD), the Non-Federal Sponsor. The study provides recommendations of rehabilitation/reconstruction efforts necessary to restore the city’s Flood Protection System to its authorized level of flood risk management. 

The study’s recommendations identified by USACE will help to provide greater reliability to the Metro Louisville Flood Protection System by bringing 1950s-era components up to 2020 standards. Major components of the plan include repair and rehabilitation of the pump stations, modifications of two road closure structures, floodwall repairs and modifications, and gate repair and replacement. The goal is to reduce current risks to life, health and safety of residents by increasing system reliability for years to come.
