    TULSA, Okla. — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Tulsa District, hereby informs the public of the release of the 2021 Draft Elk City Lake Master Plan (hereafter Plan), as well as the associated draft Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI), and draft Environmental Assessment (EA).
    The Plan is a vital tool produced and used by USACE to guide the responsible stewardship of USACE-administered lands and resources for the benefit of present and future generations. The Plan provides direction for:
    • Appropriate management
    • Use

    • Conservation of the natural, cultural, and manmade resources at Elk City Lake. It presents an inventory and analysis of:

    • Resource use plan for each land use classification
    • Current and projected park facility needs
    • An analysis of existing and anticipated resource use
    • Anticipated influences on overall project operation and management.
