dc.description.abstractThe Keystone Dam and Reservoir Master Plan, originally published as Design Memorandum 12-B, hereafter referred to as Plan or Master Plan, is the strategic land use management document that guides the comprehensive, efficient and cost effective management and development of all project recreational, natural, and cultural resources throughout the life of the project. The Plan is a vital tool for responsible stewardship and sustainability of Keystone Lake resources for the benefit of present and future generations. The Plan guides and articulates USACE responsibilities pursuant to federal laws to preserve, conserve, restore, maintain, manage, and develop the land, water, and associated resources. The Master Plan focuses on dynamic, flexible goals and objectives that are programmatic and conceptual. It does not address facility design or estimated costs. Details of design, management, administration, and implementation are addressed in the Keystone Lake Operational Management Plan (OMP). Additionally, the Keystone Dam and Reservoir Master Plan does not address the specifics of regional water quality, shoreline management, or water level management. The technical aspects of operation and maintenance of primary project operations facilities, including but not limited to the dam, spillway, and gate-controlled outlet is not included in this Plan. The Master Plan proposes public use development and resource conservation measures necessary to realize the optimal potential of the project. The Master Plan addresses expressed public interest in the overall stewardship and management of all project lands, waters, forests, recreation facilities and other resources throughout the life of the project, and includes conceptual detail showing the most desirable and feasible locations and types of facilities needed to meet identified needs. Emphasis has been placed on a balanced approach to provide public land and water-based recreation while conserving and sustaining natural and cultural resources. Adequate facilities and land-based requirements are proposed to provide all desired recreational opportunities and to ensure compliance with applicable environmental regulations, laws and policies. The Master Plan also proposes proper utilization of natural resources and recreational facilities, assuming the continued availability of Congressionally-appropriated funds, while at the same time conserving and protecting all resources held in the public trust. Implementation of the Master Plan must recognize and be compatible with the primary project missions of flood risk management, hydroelectric power generation, navigation, and water conservation. Recreational facility development proposed in this plan is dependent on availability of appropriated funds, but may also be partially achieved through partnerships, donations and volunteer efforts. The Master Plan does not propose the acquisition of additional land. Additional information regarding environmental impacts to existing conditions as a result of this Master Plan can be found in the Environmental Assessment of the Keystone Dam and Reservoir Master Plan in Appendix B.en_US
