Lake Cumberland Exceeds Desired Depth

While the past few days have been hot and humid the Lake Cumberland area has had a wet spring overall, causing the lake level to rise over 720 feet above sea level, 40-plus feet more than what the Corps of Engineers would like while work continues on Wolf Creek Dam. The Corps is currently drawing the level down about a foot a day.
