|Public meeting to discuss Kincaid siltation problem|
The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources will hold a public meeting to discuss siltation problems in Kincaid Lake at 7 p.m., Tuesday, August 21. The meeting will be held at the Multipurpose Building at Kincaid State Park near Falmouth. Doors open at 6 p.m.
Department staff and engineering consultants will discuss conclusions of studies that examined several options that would alleviate problems associated with increased areas of shallow water around the lake due to siltation. The most cost-effective options is to modify the spillway height to raise the lake by 1.7 feet. Department staff are seeking public input regarding this option prior to the meeting.
Interested persons may fill out a questionnaire regarding Kincaid Lake prior to the meeting by several methods. Online, visit the Kentucky Fish and Wildlife website at fw.ky.gov for a link to the questionnaire or go directly to the questionnaire at: https://www.research.net/S/Kincaid_Lake_Public_Input.
