USACE Reschedules Conway Lake Public Meeting

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, has rescheduled the Conway Lake Habitat and Rehabilitation public meeting for June 8.

The informal meeting, set to take place from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Kerndt Brothers Savings Bank Community Center in Lansing, Iowa, will allow for an open exchange of information. A short slide show will be presented at 6:30 p.m., to explain the project and describe the construction work in more detail, USACE said.

The project, which is part of the Upper Mississippi River Restoration Program, is located in Pool 9 immediately upstream of Lansing, Iowa. It includes protecting or restoring 321 acres of aquatic and floodplain forest habitat throughout the 1,170 acre project area, which includes Shore Slough and a portion of Phillipi Lake.

Representatives from partner agencies involved in the project will also be available, USACE added.

The Conway Lake study area includes Conway Lake, Phillipi Lake, Shore Slough, Zolls Lake, as well as the adjacent island and slough habitat. The entire study area is approximately 1,170 acres in size, with the aforementioned waterbodies encompassing approximately 130, 300, 100, and 140 acres, respectively.

The entire study area lies within the Upper Mississippi River National Wildlife and Fish Refuge.

Comments on the draft feasibility project report and integrated environmental assessment will be accepted until June 16, 2017.
