Army Corps of Engineers to have Carlyle Lake, Kaskaskia River workshops

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in St. Louis has scheduled a three public workshops on the master plan updates for Carlyle Lake and the Kaskaskia River Project.

The workshops are part of the master plan update process and people will have the opportunity to give input on their issues and concerns regarding the future management of Carlyle Lake and the Kaskaskia River Project.

These plans do not address shoreline management, water control or water quality, because these activities are included in other corps of engineers operating plans.
