Abstract: The revision of the Council Grove Lake Master Plan (Plan or Master Plan) is a framework built collaboratively to guide appropriate stewardship of US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) administered resources at Council Grove Lake over the next 25 years. The 1981 Supplement Number 2 (Land Use) Master Plan for Council Grove Lake was an update to the 1975 Master Plan and has served well past its intended 25-year planning horizon. In addition to the primary mission of flood risk management, water supply, water quality, and recreation, USACE also carries out the inherent mission of environmental stewardship on the Federal lands and water surface at Council Grove Lake. During the 2021 Master Plan update, Geographic Information System (GIS) mapping technology was utilized to verify the 1981 acreage for all fee land. Noting discrepancies between the acreage documented in the 1981 Supplement Number 2 (Land Use) Master Plan for Council Grove Lake and the recalculation of acres using current mapping technology, this document reflects the recalculated 1988 acres. The acres are shown below in ES Table 1. Currently, Council Grove Lake encompasses 3,128 acres of fee land and 2,882 acres of surface water for a total of 6,010 acres, protecting lands downstream from the dam through flood mitigation on the Neosho River, 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 Council Grove Lake, Kansas.
