Corps considering plan to close TN tailwaters

According to a story posted Wednesday on Nooga.com, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Nashville District is considering a plan that would restrict recreational boater access to tailwater areas on the Cumberland River in Tennessee.

The article quoted a brief statement released by the Corps that a plan is close to being finalized that would prevent boat access "to hazardous waters directly upstream and downstream of all hydroelectric power plant facilities along the Cumberland River and its tributaries."

The issue has attracted the attention of Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.), who fired off a letter to the Corps expressing his concerns about the plan.
