SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District will host public meetings Sept. 9-10 seeking input to update Pine Flat 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 35 miles east of Fresno.

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 Pine Flat Lake.

The master plan does not address reservoir water levels and is separate from the water control manual.

The original master plan for Pine Flat Lake was completed in 1976. The master plan update is expected to be complete in 2015.

These meetings will be held at the Veterans Memorial Building, 808 4th Street, Clovis. The primary public meeting is scheduled for 5 p.m. Sept. 10. A meeting for representatives from other public agencies will be held at 10 a.m. Sept. 9 and a stakeholder meeting is scheduled for 2 p.m. Sept. 9.

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.
