Headed for a weekend camping trip at a Corps' lake?  Please remember to acquire your firewood locally near the campground or use certified pest free firewood.  The emerald ash borer is an invasive species that is often found hitching a ride to our park areas in firewood by unknowing park visitors.  Emerald ash borers have already killed over 70 million green ash trees in the United States.  Help us prevent the spread of the emerald ash borer and other invasive tree-killing pests.

Remember on Corps' lands that fires shall be confined to designated areas and shall be contained in fireplaces, grills, or other facilities designated for this purpose. Fires shall not be left unattended and must be completely extinguished prior to departure. Always check with the local project office for information.

Repairs on slope of Sterett Creek Dike

The slide at Sterett Creek Dike was discovered in late December 2015 following six inches of rain. The saturated conditions are believed to have caused the slide. Harry S. Truman Dam project staff and geotechnical engineers from the Kansas City District Office monitor the dike routinely and have increased monitoring of the embankment since the slide occurred. It is anticipated the slide may take two to three weeks to repair.
