Rough River Lake Dam to undergo rehabilitation project

Improvements are on the way for the Rough River Lake Dam. Monday, Senator Mitch McConnell announced that the US Army Corps of Engineers had dedicated $8.7 million to a major rehabilitation project of the dam in it’s fiscal year 2021 work plan. In a release, the Army Corps detailed in a 2012 report that the existing dam called for structural improvements to lower the risk of flooding to surrounding homes and communities. The dedicated money is part of a larger $110 million for the Kentucky Lock and Dam project.
