Waurika Dredging Plan Assessed

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Regional Planning and Environmental Center and the Tulsa District, in coordination with the Waurika Lake Master Conservancy District (WLMCD), have assessed the environmental impacts associated with the proposed maintenance dredging of the WLMCD water intake channel in Waurika Lake, Cotton, Stephens, and Jefferson Counties, Oklahoma. 

Proposed activities include pumping and storage of dredge material to a confined disposal facility on WLMCD property, replacement of lower gates on the WLMCD intake structure, and installation of an intake pipe extension and floating intake.

The WLMCD maintains a water intake structure and associated channel within the normal conservation pool of Waurika Reservoir. Over the course of its life, these structures have become clogged with sediment.

The WLMCD proposes to dredge this material, deposit it outside of the reservoir on WLMCD property, and refurbish and enhance the water intake facility.

Permission to temporarily occupy and alter portions of the Waurika Lake Project has been granted by the Tulsa District in order to accomplish this goal.
