Lake Cumberland Still Reeling From Effects Of Flooding

After Lake Cumberland was hit with historic water levels last week, those who jobs are at the lake say they’re facing an uphill battle to the get the lake ready for the Summer boating season. Officials say the water has gone down several feet since its peak height, but it’s still extremely high. Water continues to pour out of Wolf Creek Dam, and U.S. Army Corps officials say it will continue for the foreseeable future in hopes of controlling flooding downstream. Right now the amount of water coming out wolf creek dam is still more than 50,000 cubic-feet per second. It’s more than enough to fill an Olympic-sized pool every two seconds.
