Abstract: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Omaha District (USACE) is planning and evaluating a project to create approximately 20 acres of shallow water habitat (SWH) at Indian Cave State Park, in Richardson County Nebraska as part of the USACE Missouri River Recovery Program (MRRP). SWH general criteria include depths greater than 0 but less than 1.5 meters (or approximately 5 feet) and current velocities of less than 0.6 meters/second (or approximately 2 feet/second). SWH may be restored through flow management, increasing the top width of the channel (widening), restoring chutes and side channels, manipulation of summer flows, or a combination thereof. The proposed project area is located between river miles (RM) 518 and 517 within the bend of the Missouri River known as Deroin Bend. The project would be constructed entirely within Indian Cave State Park on land owned by the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission (NGPC). This Project Implementation Report (PIR) focuses on potential habitat development activities at Indian Cave State Park, generally located between RM 518 and 517. Specifically, this report focuses on the construction of SWH.
