LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Lake Cumberland could see its water levels rising again by the summer.
Several marinas on the lake closed after the Army Corps of Engineers lowered the lake level in 2007 to aid repairs to Wolf Creek Dam. That move, along with the recession, hurt tourism.
The Corps says construction of the dam is ahead of schedule. Water will be partially raised, then the dam will be examined to see how it holds up before water levels are returned to normal.
Lt. Col. James A. DeLapp, Nashville District commander, said in a news release, "...completion of the barrier wall will provide the safety to the dam and protection to the communities downstream. It will also enhance our ability to generate power and reduce low water environmental impacts."
