Corps to Host Public Open House Events for Coralville Lake Water Control Plan Update

Published Feb. 19, 2019

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Rock Island District is in the process of revising the Coralville Lake Water Control Plan and is hosting two public open house events to explain the process and gather input from the public. Water Control Plans define normal operations of a water control structure and ensure the operations of a reservoir conform to laws and applicable federal regulations.

Current operations of the Coralville Lake will be presented during each public open house and District staff will be on hand to answer questions and solicit input on possible changes.

Times and locations for the information sessions are as follows:

  • Tuesday, February 26, 2019
    Iowa State Extension Office, 317 Van Buren St., Wapello, IA 52653
    4-7 p.m. (Presentation at 5:30 p.m.)

For those unable to attend an open house in person, the presentations will be offered live on the Rock Island District’s Facebook page at starting around 5:30 p.m. each day.
