The top vote-getter from the previous study was building a reservoir on the Beech Fork River, Meador said. The city currently pumps from Beech Fork to replenish Sympson Lake when necessary.
One of the major hurdles will be to get a Corps of Engineers permit for a dam or reservoir. But, a study by Kenvirons is in progress for raw water alternatives and will be sent to the Corps of Engineers (USACE) for comment in a couple of months. So we shall see what they say.
It is thought that Bardstown might receive a USACE permit, if the project deals with the maintenance of the rubble dam to its historical level, conformed to the principled work done by RiverRestoration.org.
