2018 Wappapello Lake Master Plan/Shoreline Plan Update

The 2018 Wappapello Lake Master Plan and Shoreline Plan updates are underway. The Corps of Engineers will begin soliciting feedback from partners, stakeholders, and the public beginning in early December 2017 through February 18, 2018. The first public workshop is scheduled for January 17, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Greenville Elementary School followed by a second workshop on January 18, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Bill Emerson Memorial Visitor Center in Wappapello.

All public and stakeholder input received will be compiled and considered during the development of the initial draft of the updated plans. The draft plans will be available for public review and comment in September 2018 and the final drafts are scheduled to be completed by November 2018. The target completion date for both plans is February 2019.

As information and notices become available they will be posted to this page. The 2000 Wappapello Lake Master Plan along with the current Shoreline Management Plan are available for view and download through the links below. Please be aware, the full version of the Master Plan document is large and may take a long time to open/download.

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.

A Shoreline Management Plan is defined by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers as a part of the Operational Management Plan (OMP) for each project to develop management strategies for existing and anticipated natural resource management activities. The Shoreline Management Plan is implemented at the Project level and establishes policy and guidelines for the protection and management of the shoreline under Corps jurisdiction to promote the safe and healthful use of the shoreline by the public while maintaining environmental safeguards to ensure a quality resource. The Shoreline Management Plan consists of a map showing the shoreline allocations around the lake, related rules and regulations, a discussion of what areas are open and closed to specific activities and facilities, how to apply for permits, and other information pertinent to the Corps management of the shoreline.
