USACE, Louisville MSD Join Forces in Beargrass Creek Ecosystem Restoration

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Louisville District and local project sponsor, Louisville MSD, hosted a press conference yesterday to announce their partnership to complete the Three Forks of Beargrass Creek Ecosystem Restoration Feasibility Study.

“This is a monumental day and a monumental moment for Beargrass Creek,” said Louisville MSD Director Tony Parrott at the ceremony.

“We are proud to partner with Lousiville MSD to create a comprehensive plan which will identify methods for improving this beautiful natural resource of the Three Forks of Beargrass Creek for generations to come,” added Louisville District Commander Col. Antoinette Gant.

“This study has been the result of years of coordination and one we are fortunate to have been selected for as it is one of only six new start projects across the Corps of Engineers and the only ecosystem restoration project selected nationwide.”

The two entities are taking a big step in improving the Beargrass Creek Watershed in Louisville, Kentucky.

Together they will investigate innovative restoration techniques and engineering solutions that will be in harmony with the watershed’s urban environment.
