Yarmuth Announces $600K for Flood Prevention

Louisvillians (and those from Lively Shively) rejoice! The great floods won’t swallow up your home thanks to Rep. John Yarmuth (KY-03).

(Louisville, KY) Today at West County Wastewater Treatment Plant, Congressman John Yarmuth (KY-3) announced that he had secured federal funding for three flood prevention projects in the Louisville area.

“Each downpour should not bring about fresh fears of flooding. Jefferson County families deserve to raise their families in sanitary conditions and should not have to constantly worry about overflow,” Congressman Yarmuth said. “This funding will help ensure that the residents of Shively, PRP, and other areas in the South and West Ends no longer face this regular and costly threat.”

Yarmuth’s three flood projects will include:

  • $96,432– Flood Damage Reduction Feasibility Study
  • $145,632–Mill Creek Flood Risk Feasibility Study
  • $492,200 – Shively Sewer System
