Corps of Engineers seeks input
Landowners interested in the Headwaters U.S. Army Corps of Engineers reservoirs, non-corps reservoirs and the Mississippi River watershed in general are invited to join lake forum groups now being formed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to evaluate its operating plans in the area.
The input received from these forum groups will be included in the Corps' reservoir operating plan evaluation study, which is looking at flood control, environmental concerns, water quality, water supply, tribal trust, recreation, navigation, hydropower and other water issues.
Each reservoir, including Lake Winnibigoshish, Leech Lake, Pokegama Lake, Big Sandy Lake, Cross Lake and Gull Lake, as well as Lake Bemidji/Stump Lake, the entire Cass Lake chain and Prairie Lake, will have its own lake forum group. These groups will begin meeting this summer.
To join in the discussions and receive mailings regarding these lake forum groups and/or the reservoir operating plan evaluation study, contact Edward McNally at (651) 290-5387 or toll free at 1-800-290-5847, extension 5387. For additional background information, contact the USACE Headwaters project office in Grand Rapids at (218) 327-4027.
