This will be the final public outreach engagement for the Loyalhanna Lake and Conemaugh River Lake Master Plan revision process.

A master plan is a strategic land use management document that guides the comprehensive management and development of recreation, natural and cultural resources at Corps reservoirs. The original master plans for Loyalhanna Lake and Conemaugh River Lake are dated 1950 and 1952 respectively. Changes in Corps regulations and community needs necessitate a revision to the master plans.
