Change to 2014 Winter Pool for Green River Lake

By Andrea O'Bryan
Park Ranger, Green River Lake

U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Louisville District

GREEN RIVER LAKE, KY - Due to scheduled maintenance at the Green River Lake Control Tower, the Louisville District Corps of Engineers has approved a temporary change in the lake's 2014 drawdown.

Since 2002, the winter pool elevation has been 668 feet mean sea level (msl). Historically, the winter pool elevation was 664' msl. The approved deviation will allow Green River Lake to return to its historic winter pool elevation of 664' msl for just this one year.

Upon completion of the work at the control tower, the lake will start rising to 668' msl where it will remain until March 15, at which time the normal schedule will be followed to bring the lake to its normal summer pool of 675' msl.

TWO MORE CANDIDATES for COUNCIL. Thanks who helped on this. I've learned that there were eight, not just six candidates in the Council race when I wrote my original letter to the media Commentary on occupational tax, economic development, merger which set in motion what I am convinced is already a groundswell to make history in Columbia, KY, to elect a Mayor of Columbia with a write in vote. Besides the incumbents, two more, Kenneth Dulin and Craig Lasley, had filed. I did not mean to overlook them. When I'm elected, I know I can work with every council member who wants to work for a better Columbia. Ben Arnold, write in for Mayor, City of Columbia, KY. (Paid for by Ben Arnold)
