2015 Mark Twain Lake Master Plan Update

The Mark Twain Lake Master Plan update process began this spring with the first public meeting on April 7, 2015. Next, the draft update is produced and is expected to be available for comment and review by late summer 2015.  After a 30 day comment period, the final draft will be completed with approval anticipated near the end of calendar year 2015.

As information and notices become available they will be posted to this page. Sections of the current 2004 Master Plan are available for viewing and download through the links below. The full version of the plan (all sections and appendices in a single PDF) is available in the documents box to the right. Please be aware, the full version of the Master Plan document is large and may take a long time to open/download. 

Below is a definition of what the Master Plan (MP) encompasses:

A Project Master Plan is defined by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers as the strategic land use management document that guides the comprehensive management and development of all project recreational, natural, and cultural resources throughout the life of a Corps water resources development project. In general, it defines “how” the resources will be managed for public use and resource conservation. The MP does not address the specifics of regional water quality, shoreline management, or water level management. Additionally, the operation and management of associated prime facilities (dam, gates, powerhouses, spillways, etc.) is not included.
