Abstract: The Greers Ferry Lake Master Plan is the required USACE approval document (ER 1130-2-550, Chapter 3; https://www.publications.usace.army.mil/Portals/76/Publications/Engineer Regulations/ER_1130-2-550.pdf) that guides all use and development on the project’s more than 40,000 acres of Federal public lands and waters for environmental stewardship and recreation related purposes, throughout the life of the project. Greers Ferry Lake’s Master Plan was last updated in 1976, and it is now out of date. The need for the proposed action is based on the age of the current plan and the changed conditions around the lake and in lake use. The preliminary Master Plan for Greers Ferry Lake was approved in December 1961 and an updated Master Plan was approved in August 1968. The last update to the Master Plan was completed in 1976. There are currently 27 supplements to the 1976 Master Plan. From 1976 to the present, public use patterns have remained similar, but trends in facility and service demands have shifted in the past 40+ years due to the increase in visitation and tourism. Greers Ferry Lake incurs recreation pressure for both private shoreline and public recreation use, resulting in environmental and management issues, which cause sustainability concerns. Over the last four decades, the existing plan format and mapping technology has become outdated and is not compliant with current Master Plan format and current Corps policies/regulations, budget processes, business line performance measures. Additionally, priorities are not reflected in the existing Master Plan.
