    Nolin Lake contains approximately 5,795 acres and is located in central Ky. in the counties of Edmonson, Grayson, and Hart. Nolin Lake was authorized and built from the Flood Control Act of 1938. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers designed, built, and still operates Nolin Lake to reduce flood damages downstream from the dam. During the fall and winter months, when excessive rainfall is likely, the lake is kept at a relatively low level, referred to as "Winter Pool." This allows the Corps of Engineers to control water flow down-stream should excessive rainfall flood lower lying areas. Nolin Dam can hold back this water until an appropriate time when the excessive water can safely be released without danger to property or life. Nolin dam is located on the Nolin River near the community of Bee Spring, in Edmonson County, approximately 20 miles from Leitchfield.
