GRAND RIVERS – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Nashville District is offering to the public free guided tours of Lake Barkley’s Power Plant and Navigation Lock. These are the first tours of the power plant and navigation lock since visitation was restricted after Sept. 11, 2001.

Approximately two hours in length, tours are scheduled June 23, July 21, Aug. 18, and Sep. 15, with tours beginning at 9 and 11 a.m., and 2 p.m.

Tour size is limited and is on a first-come, first-serve basis. All guests including minors are required to submit a request form at least five days prior to the tour and receive an email confirmation from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Nashville District Office.

Registered tour participants will be required to check in at the Lake Barkley Natural Resource Management Office Visitor Center and receive a brief introduction prior to boarding a shuttle to the Power Plant and Lock structures.

Lake Barkley Resource Manager Mike Looney said it is the Nashville District’s mission to unlock the story of the Lake Barkley Power Plant and Lock and their many benefits to the nation.
