WHY: Corps regulations require master plans to be periodically reviewed to ensure they meet current public and environmental needs. The master plan guides the use of government-owned and leased lands around the lake, the shoreline management plan aims to protect and manage the shoreline in a way that promotes safe and healthful use, and maintaining environmental safeguards ensure a quality resource for use by the public. Community input is critical to the master plan and shoreline management plan updates and will affect the management and usage of Tygart Lake for the next 25 years.
