    Story by Brannen Parrish 

    U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Tulsa District

    The Tulsa District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will accept written public comments related to the management of Council Grove Lake April 9 - May 9.

    Draft documents for the Council Grove Lake Master Plan and Council Grove Lake Environmental Assessment as well as the Finding of No Significant Impact letter will be available online at

    To comment electronically, send an email to or mail comments to:

    U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Council Grove Lake
    Council Grove Lake Manager
    945 Lake Road
    Council Grove, KS 66846.

    Comments received after May 9 will not be considered. Questions can be directed to the lake manager.

    The Tulsa District Operations Division has created a video presentation, available at

    The video outlines the MP and associated documents as no in-person public informational meeting will take place due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.

    Master plans explain the overall guiding vision for the use, development, and protection of resources at USACE reservoirs. The current Council Grove Lake MP was approved in 1975.

    Environmental assessments determine how a proposed action, such as implementation of the MP, will impact a project. In performing an EA, the USACE considers how and whether a proposal will significantly affect natural, cultural, and manmade resources as well as local economies and communities.

    The FONSI letter is a document that briefly presents the reasons why an action will not have a significant effect on the human environment. When an agency makes a FONSI determination no environmental impact statement will be required.
