Abstract: The revision of the Fall River Lake Master Plan (Plan or Master Plan) is a framework built collaboratively to guide appropriate stewardship of U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) administered resources at Fall River Lake over the next 25 years. The 1977 Master Plan for Fall River Lake was an update of the original 1948 Master Plan and has served well past its intended 25-year planning horizon. In addition to the inherent mission of environmental stewardship, the lake and dam’s primary purposes are flood risk management, water quality, fish and wildlife conservation, recreation, and water supply. The 1977 Master Plan classifies a total of 12,797 acres of USACE land and 2,350 acres of surface water at conservation pool within the fee boundary. Due to land changes from erosion and sedimentation as well as better measurement technology, this number has increased. Currently, Fall River Lake encompasses 13,185 acres of land and 2,084 acres of surface water, protecting lands downstream from the dam through flood mitigation and low-flow regulation for pollution abatement on the Verdigris River while providing water for agriculture and town water supply, as well as conserving habitat for fish and wildlife conservation and public recreation. This Plan and supporting documentation provides an inventory, analysis, goals, objectives and recommendations for USACE lands and waters at Fall River Lake, Kansas.
