MANHATTAN, Kan. — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Kansas City District at Tuttle Creek Lake will host an open house to review seasonal plans for lake elevations at the Fire Department Headquarters Training Center, 2000 Denison Avenue, Manhattan, Kansas, May 4 from 7-8 p.m.

To broaden understanding and provide opportunity for public input, the informal open house will provide interactive stations to describe how and why these plans are authorized, highlight the major benefits to fish and wildlife and recreation and provide opportunity for one-on-one interaction with staff from the Corps and the Kansas Water Office.

To enhance on-lake fish and wildlife and recreation benefits, many Corps’ lake projects follow these plans to operate either a little above or below normal pool level on a seasonal basis. The plans at Tuttle Creek Lake are cooperatively agreed upon between the Corps, the Kansas Water Office and the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism.

Comments and questions regarding the open house should be directed to the Tuttle Creek Lake project office at (785) 539-8511.
