Funding would be used to permanently repair the Center Hill Dam. Since its construction in 1951, seepage problems have cost millions of dollars for constant upkeep and has increased risk of dam failure, threatening downtown Nashville with flooding. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Dam Safety Portfolio Risk Assessment ranked Center Hill Dam as a Class I dam safety project -- the highest priority of all Corps dams.
