Abstract: The Bull Shoals Shoreline Management Plan (SMP) is the required U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) approval document (Title 36, Section 327.30 and ER 1130-2-406) that protects and manages shorelines of USACE Civil Works water resource development projects under Corps jurisdiction in a manner that promotes safe and healthful public use of shorelines while maintaining environmental safeguards. The objectives of management actions in this SMP are to balance permitted private uses and natural resource protection for general public use. The Corps last updated the Bull Shoals Lake SMP in March 2001 and the document is currently out of date. The updated Bull Shoals SMP, once approved by the Southwestern Division Engineer, will become an appendix to the Operation Management Plan (OMP) for the lake. The OMP was last updated in June of 2011. The objectives of the SMP are to manage and protect the shoreline, to maintain optimal fish and wildlife habitat, natural environmental conditions, and to promote the safe and enjoyable use of the lake and shoreline for recreational purposes. Activities covered by the shoreline management plan, such as placing private floating facilities or modifying vegetation, on public lands require prior written approval, and/or a shoreline use permit from the Operations Project Manager (OPM) at Bull Shoals Lake. With the draft SMP update, the Corps is completing an Environmental Assessment (EA) that evaluates existing conditions and potential impacts of proposed alternatives. The EA is prepared pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) regulations (40 CFR, 1500–1517), and the Corps Policy and Procedures for Implementing NEPA as directed by Engineer Regulation (ER) 200-2-2 (1988).
