Funding Secured to Clean Up Fishtrap Lake in Pike County

On Friday, December 21, 2018, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ announced the dedication of $300,000 in additional funds to clean up Fishtrap Lake in Pike County, one of the largest lakes in Eastern Kentucky. Each year, rainfall and flooding carry trash and debris into the lake, which float downriver and eventually collect at Fishtrap Dam. This collection of trash at the dam negatively impacts the economic drivers of the community, including tourism and small businesses. The additional funding will be used to expand the Army Corps’ current cleanup activities around the lake.
