WARSAW, Mo. - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has begun the process of revising the Harry S. Truman Dam & Reservoir Master Plan, which was last updated in October 1988. The revision would bring the Master Plan up to date with current policy and regulations, land usage or designations, as well as consider current and projected visitation and recreational trends.
“So far, we hosted one of three public meetings for the Master Plan revision and have heard several comments on key recreation and natural resource management actions for the lake,” said Jim Sandberg, Operations Project Manager at Harry S. Truman Lake. “Comments provided online or at these public meetings are taken into account on future management actions and will be considered and evaluated as the new Master Plan evolves.”
The Master Plan is the strategic land use management document that guides the comprehensive management and development of all recreational, natural, and cultural resources throughout the life of the project. The Master Plan guides efficient and cost-effective management, development, and use of project lands. It is a vital tool for the responsible stewardship and sustainability of project resources for the benefit of present and future generations.
