‘PRIDE of the Cumberland’ clearing debris, trash on Lake Cumberland
An aerial photo of the “PRIDE of the Cumberland" taken Aug. 2, 2017 at Waitsboro Recreation area. The vessel is operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, is used to keep Lake Cumberland’s waterways and shorelines clean and free of logs, debris and trash. After two months of repairs to the vessel’s rudder, props, shaft, hull plate, and other upgrades, the PRIDE of the Cumberland is again making rounds on Lake Cumberland. The vessel is based at the Waitsboro Recreation area and has been called upon more recently due to the heavy logs and debris in the lake.
