Public Notice Corps Seeks Input on Miami River

PUBLIC NOTICE Corps seeks input on Miami River Area Master Plan updates The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Louisville District is inviting the public to comment on the revised Master Plans for three lakes in the Miami River watershed in Ohio including: Caesar Creek Lake in Waynesville; West Fork Lake in Cincinnati; and C.J. Brown Dam & Reservoir in Springfield. USACE is seeking comments and feedback from the public until August 10, 2020. A Master Plan is a document that conceptually establishes and guides the orderly development, administration, maintenance, preservation, enhancement, and management of all natural, cultural, and recreational resources of a Corps water resource project. Public input is critical in the Master Plan update process as it allows the Corps to shape the overall vision of natural resource management, environmental stewardship, water quality and recreational opportunities at the lake. In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, as amended, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Louisville District is also requesting public comment on the Draft Environmental Assessments for each project. Comments regarding any of the EAs will assist in the agency's evaluation of the project changes and will be reflected in the project record.
