Project Description

Collapse All Expand All
OVERVIEW:  This Section 202 Flood Damage Reduction Project encompasses the areas located along the mainstem of the Levisa Fork in Pike County, Kentucky including all tributaries in the county that experienced flooding in April 1977. The local sponsor is the Pike County Fiscal Court and the cost-share percentage is 95% Federal and 5% non-Federal.  There are over 2,000 residences and commercial structures with a potential for non-structural floodproofing in the study area.  There is also a potential for non-structural floodproofing of 1 ringwall around the Millard Middle School and Pike County Vo-Tech Center.  There also is a potential for structural floodproofing with two floodwalls at North Pikeville and Coal Run.  In February 2007, the feasibility study was forwarded to Corps Headquarters in Washington for review and approval.  We anticipate the report to be approved this year.
