Shoreline Management Plans

Shoreline Management Plans help to ensure that the water area, shoreline and adjacent public land of Corps of Engineers projects are managed to protect the environment and scenic beauty of our lakes for future generations.  The plan achieves this by limiting private use of the federal resource as set forth in the Code of Federal Regulations, Title 36, Chapter III, Part 327.

Privately Owned Boat Docks

About the Plans and Maps

Shoreline Management Plans

Shoreline Management Plans deal with private boat docks, mowing permits, and other uses of government property.  The Shoreline Management Plan, and all maps available for these projects, can be viewed or downloaded from the relevant project located on the right side of this page.

Shoreline Management Plan Maps

These maps show the zoning of parcels of the shoreline at the lakes.  Most of the projects have mutiple maps to show the zoning clearly and for these projects the zoning maps have been combined into one document.  Due to the large file size the maps may be slow to load.

Cove Maps

The cove maps (if available) are of individual coves and their allotted shoreline.  These maps indicate the amount of shoreline zoned for private floating structures.  The maps are available as a combined file and have been setup with Bookmarks to assist the user in finding the cove map of interest. 

 

Shoreline Management Plan Revisions

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Tulsa District, is in the process of revising its Shoreline Management Plan (SMP) for the project/projects as presented below.  The purpose of the SMP is to establish policies and provide guidelines for managing the shoreline (lakeshore) and open water areas of these lakes, for the protection of desirable environmental characteristics and for the restoration of shorelines where degradation has occurred. The SMP establishes rules and guidelines for managing private uses of shoreline areas such as private boat docks and vegetation modification.

Why revise the Shoreline Management Plan?

The revision of a Shoreline Management Plan (SMP) is to address changes in land use and policies since the last SMP was published. Key topics to be addressed in the revision include revising shoreline allocations and updating the plan to incorporate changes in public law and national policies related to shoreline management. The objective of the revision and related management actions will be to achieve a balance between permitted private uses and resource protection for general public use. Public participation is critical to the successful revision of the Shoreline Management Plan.
