They had allready lowered it some. Another 10-15 feet will render it allmost useless to boaters because all the ramps will be out of reach. This will surely hurt the local economies. Espcially Russle Springs and Somerset where allot of the houseboat industry is located. You won't be able to get near Laurel Lake this summer. The boat traffic was allready bad there but now it will be impossible.:shakehead
I heard yesterday they are going to drop it about 43'. That puts about 90% of the ramps out of use. Several places are planning on extending the ramps before they go out of business.
Is there anything worth diving that is not normally reachable, while the water is down? I'd say it will warm up long before it comes back to regular pool.
I noticed on the front page of Monday's Herald Leader, in the background of the picture of Burnside Marina, was a tunnel. In the picture it was already High and Dry. Does anyone know if this tunnel is underwater at normal Summer pool? Is it clear through or is there debris obstruction? I'm thinking cave dive with really lousy vis!
I'm sure by mid summer the mud will be dry enough to walk on suggest a hike into the tunnel and check it out. Take a GPS and get the nav position for it then when the water is back up you'll know it's exact location to dive.
On Louisville radio tonight I overheard the Corps is heading a 5-7 year timeline for the dam repair. 10 ramps have been approved by Congress to be extended immediately, leaving about 40 more for final budgeting approval. I think Barren and Dale Hollow will get a lot of the overflow this year.
