Riprapping complete at CAUD Wastewater Plant

2014-06-16 - Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener.
The riprapping along the bank of Russell Creek
at the Columbia/Adair County Utilities District is complete. Above Wastewater Plant Manager Joe Chapman, front and Assistant Plant Manager Steve Breeding look out over the straightened channel. The work was done to prevent another a flood like the one which inundated the treatment plant in 2010. The construction was completed by Dakota Meyer Enterprises, Columbia, KY, and Cleary Construction of Tompkinsville, KY. The channel is frequented by boaters, canoeist and kayakers, and is part of one of the four initial Trails in Adair County' Trail Town USA application, a Paddle Trail from the E KY 80 bridge to Slick Rock Road in Milltown, Adair County, KY.
