Whale of a reaction to minnow decision that affects lake level

Corps swamped with complaints


Jamestown —

  “For eight years now, the Army Corps of Engineers has single-handedly stifled the economic development opportunities of our region. Their decision to not raise the water level at Lake Cumberland this summer gives the duskytail darter more rights than our own citizens,” said Girdler. 
  “This announcement places an unnecessary burden on our already hurting business owners, and it comes at a time when many of these business owners have already spent money promoting the upcoming season,” Girdler continued.  “I join Congressman Hal Rogers and Sen. Mitch McConnell in calling for the Corps to reconsider this decision,” he said.
