Flooding begins at Harris Brake WMA

Posted: December 6, 2012 at 4:34 a.m.

With a new water-control gate in place, flooding began this week on the 800-acre green tree reservoir north of Harris Brake Lake at Harris Brake Wildlife Management Area in Perry County. An old water gate recently was removed, and new equipment was thoroughly checked for leaks before installation was complete and flooding could begin. Repairs were made just in time for the next segments of duck hunting season, today-Dec. 23 and Dec. 26-Jan. 27.
