Lake Texoma Master Plan Workshops

Tulsa District logoThe United States Army Corps of Engineers, Tulsa District, has announced plans for two informal public workshops for discussion of the Master Plan revision and scoping under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) for Lake Texoma.

The Tulsa District is initiating a review and revision of the master plan (MP) FOR Lake Texoma, Oklahoma and Texas. The Master Plan is the strategic land management document that guides the comprehensive management and development of all project recreational, natural, and cultural resources throughout the life of a Corps lake project. It is a vital tool for efficient and cost-effective management, development, and use of project lands. The general public is invited to comment and participate in the review and revision of the Master Plan for Lake Texoma.

A master plan does not address issues associated with private boat docks or permits for shoreline vegetation modification. These issues are specifically addressed in the Shoreline Management Plan for a lake project. The Shoreline Management Plan for Lake Texoma will be reviewed and revised at a later date. Private dock and shoreline vegetation modification permits will be addressed at that time and not in the current Master Plan revision process. Also note that a Master Plan does not address water control plans, water releases, or issues related to lake levels.

The first workshop will be held from 6 – 8 pm on June 22, 2015 at the Pottsboro High School, 901 Highway 120, Pottsboro, Texas. The second is scheduled for 6 – 8 pm on June 23, 2015 at the Kingston High School, 403 N.E. 3rd Street, Kingston, Oklahoma. Both workshops will be come-and-go formats with no formal presentation.   The public is invited to attend either or both of these workshops anytime between listed times, visit the information tables, and discuss Master Plan issues with the staff. Comment forms will be provided at the workshops or you are welcome to submit comments in any form throughout the Master Plan revision process.

Questions should be directed to Mr. Joe Custer, Texoma Lake Manager, 903.465.4990 or e-mail
