The Mosquito Creek Lake staff is looking for public input to help safeguard the reservoir's natural resources!

The current Master Plan at Mosquito Creek Lake has been in place since 1994, and we are now looking for public input to guide the plan for the next 25 years. This plan will guide the comprehensive management and development of recreation, natural and cultural resources for the future.

The Mosquito Creek Lake is managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Pittsburgh District, and they will incorporate public comments and input in their upcoming Master Plan during the update process.

Public can join the conversation and learn more during a virtual meeting hosted Thursday, Oct. 14, at 6 p.m.
