An independent panel of experts recommends to the Army Corps of Engineers, the level of Lake Cumberland be lowered an additional 30 feet to minimize the chance of Wolf Creek Dam failing.
The panel was hired by the Corps to examine engineering decisions. They found that there’s a significant potential for failure of the dam under normal operating conditions.
The panel said lowering the water level of Lake Cumberland more would help avoid a failure due to seepage.
A spokesman for the group, states the recommendations are intended to avoid any further damage that might be occurring to the dam.
