Why is Learning More about the Deauthorization Process Important? Here is just one example that we will see in closer detail: The Green River Lock and Dam

“Eight miles of the Green River through Mammoth Cave National Park are flowing pretty much freely again for the first time first time in more than a century following the partial failure of a lock and dam that’s been crumbling for decades. With a new hole in and under the dam near Brownsville dramatically lowering water levels in the pool behind it – the stretch that has backed up into the national park – U.S. Army Corps of Engineers spokeswoman Carol Labashosky said the river there now will begin to “return to its natural state.”

However, she said the antique lock and dam structure is now especially dangerous and the corps officials recommend people stay away, including canoers and kayakers, and people who fish there. She said the corps “is watching it closely.”
