Officials celebrate completion of Hatchery Creek
Lt. Col. Stephen Murphy, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Nashville District commander, speaks during the Hatchery Creek Dedication in Jamestown, Ky., April 29, 2016. He talked about how the Hatchery Creek Restoration Project gave the Corps of Engineers enough top soil to cover a 40-acre disposal area filled with limestone rock, concrete and clay from the Wolf Creek Dam Safety Rehabilitation Project. The Corps spent $650,000 to excavate the soil, but used about 56,000 cubic yards of top soil excavated from the channel with savings of almost a million dollars.
