Abstract: Prompton Dam was built in response to severe floods on the Lackawaxen River and was completed in 1960 with flood control as its sole purpose. Prompton Dam is part of an integrated reservoir flood control system for the Lackawaxen River. In conjunction with the General Edgar Jadwin Dam, the system provides flood protection, in varying degrees, to the boroughs of Prompton, Honesdale, and Hawley and to smaller communities along the Lackawaxen River. While flood control is the only authorized purpose for this project, the project also includes recreational public use facilities. The purpose of this document is to update the Master Plan, last revised in 1971. The Master Plan is the strategic land use management document that guides the comprehensive management and development of all project-related recreational, natural, and cultural resources throughout the life of a USACE project. The Master Plan guides efficient and cost-effective management, development and use of project lands. It is a vital tool for the responsible stewardship and sustainability of project resources for the benefit of present and future generations. The Master Plan guides and articulates the USACE responsibilities, pursuant to federal laws to preserve, conserve, restore, maintain, manage, and develop project lands and waters and associated resources. The Master Plan update is considered a federal action and must comply with NEPA.
