The Kaskaskia River Project Master Plan update process was completed on 18 DEC 2018.
The Corps of Engineers began soliciting feedback from partners, stakeholders, and the public beginning in 2016. The updated master plan incorporates a Watershed Approach among the three Corps projects located on the Kaskaskia River: Lake Shelbyville, Carlyle Lake, and the Kaskaskia River Project. All three project Master Plans began the update process in FY16 using a common approach to addressing issues.
Previously, the master plan for the Kaskaskia River Project was included as part of the Rivers Project Master Plan, which also includes: Pool 24, Pool 25, Pool 26 and Locks 27 on the Mississippi River; Kaskaskia Lock and Dam, and the Cache River Diversion Channel. The final product of the Kaskaskia River Project Master Plan will be the first stand alone document to address the Kaskaskia River Project on its own. Therefore, please be aware that the current master plan for the Kaskaskia River Project provided on this website is not all inclusive. It is simply the Kaskaskia River portion of the larger "Rivers Project" Master Plan.
