U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to store water at Barkley Reservoir, reduce Ohio River and Mississippi River flood crests

 

Written by Bill Peoples
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Nashville District

U.S. Army Corps of EngineersNashville, TN – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Nashville District announced today that it is continuing its flood control operation by using flood control storage in Lake Barkley to help mitigate the ongoing flood event on the Ohio River. This may cause minor high water impacts to communities along the Cumberland River in Lyon and Trigg Counties in Kentucky, and Stewart and Montgomery Counties in Tennessee.

Releases from Barkley Dam on the Cumberland River in Kuttawa, KY, are being reduced today as the Ohio River flood crest passes downstream. This reduction in discharge contributes to lowering the crest on the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers, thereby reducing flood risk at cities such as Paducah, KY, Cairo, IL, Memphis, TN, Vicksburg MS, and New Orleans, LA.

Cumberland River may rise due to U.S. Army Corps of Engineers flood Control operation at Lake Barkley.
