Open house scheduled for Milford Lake to review seasonal plans for lake elevations

Published April 28, 2016

MILFORD, Kan. — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Kansas City District at Milford Lake will host an open house to review seasonal plans for lake elevations at the Milford Lake Conference Center in Acorns Resort, 3710 Farnum Creek Road, Milford, Kansas, May 4 from 2-4 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 Milford 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 Milford Lake project office at (785) 238-5714.
