Coralville Lake Master Plan Revision

Coralville Lake is in the process of revising its Master Plan due to its current plan not having been revised since the late 1970s. Since that time, many changes have occurred such as federal policies, Corps regulations and guidance, and recreational use trends. The revision process began in March 2015 and is now at a point where the final draft is ready for public review. To the right you will find a video highlighting the changes that were made to the document. Click the image to the left to see the newly revised version of the Coralville Lake Master Plan. 

Comments about the newly revised plan can be submitted through Sept. 15, 2022, via the link: Submit Comments or sent directly to


What is a Master Plan?

A Master Plan (MP) is a recreation, natural resource, and land-use management document. Per Chapter 3 of Engineering Regulation1130-2-550 and Engineering Pamphlet 1130-2-550 Corps policy, it is the "...document that conceptually establishes and guides the orderly development, administration, maintenance, preservation, enhancement, and management of natural, cultural, and recreational resources of a Corps’ water resource project." Despite what the name might suggest, it is not a plan for navigation (locks, dams and associated infrastructure for commercial barge traffic), flood risk management (such as levees in the PL84-99 Program), or water level management which are addressed in other guidance documents.

Additional information on the current approved plans, master planning process, Coralville Lake, or the recreation, environmental stewardship, or shoreline management sections can be found in the Additional Information links below.
