The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Nolin Lake has issued a statement regarding closings at the lake. The statement said:
"Nolin River Lake is rising and will continue to rise for several days. It is anticipated that we will reach an elevation of approximately 525' MSL by Sunday morning. Lake levels this high have resulted in the closure of Wax Campground on Saturday at 12:00 Noon. There are also several sites at Dog Creek Campground which will be closed this weekend. Significant additional rainfall may result in earlier closure. We are in the process of contacting affected campers and issuing refunds."
The statement also said that boat ramps, parking lots, and other facilities have also been affected by high water. Lake officials are urging patrons to please pay attention for signs and barricades which will help you avoid hazards and assist in allowing access to areas.
"Boaters should use caution this weekend, the statement said. "The lake contains lots of drift and submerged debris. If you have questions, please feel free to contact our office at 270-286-4511."
