The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Regional Planning and Environmental Center and the Tulsa District, in coordination with the Waurika Lake Master Conservancy District (WLMCD), have assessed the environmental impacts associated with the proposed maintenance dredging of the WLMCD water intake channel in Waurika Lake, Cotton, Stephens, and Jefferson Counties, Oklahoma. Proposed activities include pumping and storage of dredge material to a confined disposal facility on WLMCD property, replacement of lower gates on the WLMCD intake structure, and installation of an intake pipe extension and floating intake. These proposed alterations/modifications are operation and maintenance responsibilities of the non-Federal sponsor, the WLMCD, and will be implemented at no cost to the federal government.

In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) including guidelines in 33 Code of Federal Regulations, Part 230, the Tulsa District has assessed the environmental effects of construction and operation of a multi-use trail system around Arcadia Lake, Oklahoma. The proposed trail would be paved and vary in width from 12- to 18-feet and accommodate varying user groups of pedestrians, joggers, and cyclists.
