Commentary: Corps working to ensure storage rights for Lake Cumberland water users
A recent article in the Commonwealth Journal alleged that I said (in the author’s words) that water users around Lake Cumberland would soon have to dig a well or take a bucket to the creek to get water as the result of an ongoing Army Corps of Engineers water storage reallocation study. The Commonwealth Journal article titled “Corps plans to begin charging for lake water” was in response to a letter I recently sent to municipal and industrial water supply users drawing from Lake Cumberland. I genuinely appreciate the concern that the article represents but the misrepresentation of my tone and of the project’s intended benefit troubles me, so I wanted to respond explaining why we’re doing what we’re doing and the benefit to us all.
