The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Pittsburgh District is revising both the Youghiogheny River Lake Master Plan (MP) and Shoreline Management Plan (SMP). 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, while maintaining environmental safeguards to ensure a quality resource for use by the public.
Update (as of August 2022): With your help, we have completed our update of the Youghiogheny River Lake Master Plan and Environmental Assessment (EA). Thank you to everyone who participated during the scoping and public comment processes. Your input helped us to create a Master Plan that will now guide the use of government-owned and leased lands around the lake for the next 25 years.
For the Shoreline Management Plan and Environmental Assessment (EA), we have completed our scoping phases and public review of the new proposed drafts. We are now working on finalizing the Shoreline Management Plan and the EA.
