SACRAMENTO, Calif. (July 17, 2013) -- The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District will host public meetings July 29 and July 30 seeking input to update Martis Creek Lake and Dam’s master plan, which guides the management of natural and cultural resources and development of recreation-related facilities in and around the Corps-managed reservoir near Truckee.

The meetings provide an opportunity for members of the public to provide input on future environmental stewardship and recreational opportunities they’d like to see offered at Martis Creek Lake.

Martis Creek Lake’s master plan was last updated in 1977. The current master plan update is expected to be complete in June 2014. If any modifications to Martis Creek Dam are proposed in the future as a result of the Corps’ ongoing dam safety study, the master plan would be further reviewed and modified as necessary.

The meetings will be held both days at the Truckee Airport (10356 Truckee Airport Road) in Truckee. Meetings for representatives from other public agencies will begin at 2 p.m. each day. Public meetings will begin at 6 p.m. each day.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is America’s largest provider of outdoor recreation opportunities on federal public lands, serving more than 350 million visitors annually at 422 lake and river recreation parks in 43 states.
