Proposed project is located in wetlands and on an unnamed tributary to White Breast Creek in Section 30, Township 72 North, Range 22 West, in Lucas County, Iowa, approximately 1.3 miles southeast of the town of Lucas. Latitude 41.007674, Longitude -93.446213. UTM Zone 15, NAD 83.

This project was advertised in 2019, however it was withdrawn due to the lack of a stream and wetland mitigation plan. The proposed project description remains the same. The Applicant, Lucas Farms, LLC has proposed to construct an earthen dam that will create a lake approximately 56-acres in size for recreational use, such as swimming, boating, fishing and hunting. The proposed embankment is approximately 600 feet long, 52.5 feet tall and 20 feet wide, and would include an emergency spillway and upstream settling pond. The proposed primary spillway will include two, twin 330 feet long RCP culverts and will empty into the unnamed tributary. The proposed lake will be about 50 feet deep at its deepest point. Borrow material for the proposed lake will come from on-site.
