Corps to hold meetings on restricting water access
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is planning a series of public meeting in January to solicit opinions on restricting access in hazardous waters immediately upstream and downstream of all Corps-owned locks and dams in Kentucky and Tennessee. Dates for the meetings have not been set.
The Somerset Commonwealth-Journal reports the Corps is concerned about areas above and below dams in the Nashville District. The waters pose a high level of risk for the public because hydroelectric and lock operations often begin with little or no notice. The meetings are planned for Paducah, Somerset, Nashville, Tennessee, and Cookeville, Tennessee.
