The Tulsa District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers released the draft of the Lake Texoma Master Plan, August 25, 2016.

The Tulsa District Regional Planning and Environmental Center conducted the revision and assessed environmental impacts of the Master Plan revision. The Master Plan is the strategic land-use management document that guides the comprehensive management and development of all project recreational, natural and cultural resources throughout the life of the water resource project.

The revised Master Plan and Environmental Assessment were prepared in accordance with U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Regulation 1130-2-550, Project Operations – Recreation Operations and Maintenance Policies, and 33 Code of Federal Regulations, part 230, Policy and Procedures for Implementing the National Environmental Policy Act, respectively. It has been determined from the referenced EA that adoption of Lake Texoma Master Plan revision will have no significant adverse impacts on the natural or human environment.
