Bluegrass Lake Area Flooding Remains Unresolved
Bluegrass Lake Flooding
The Bluegrass Lake area flooding remains unresolved. After the previous serious flooding events with intrusion into homes and businesses and lack of access to homes, a neighborhood group assembled and asked to meet with the County engineers. To date there has been no community meeting.
Property owners closest to the problem have stayed in continuous communication with Jim Snowden, County Engineer. Mr. Snowden has been responsive to the group and has reported that conversations have gone on between Knox County and the City of Knoxville and they are working through plans.
This past weekend the home and business owners became deeply alarmed and insisted on help to prevent another damaging event. Mr. Snowden responded and at least one temporary pump is now in place working to keep the lake from backing into the homes and businesses.
