Public Comments Accepted on Pound / Flannagan Master Plans

Published Sept. 11, 2020

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is looking for input on its proposed Master Plan Revision for John W. Flannagan Lake and North Fork of Pound Lake in Virginia.

An update to the Master Plan is required to reflect current conditions and prescribe an overall land use management plan, resource objectives, and associated design and management concepts. Key topics to be addressed in the revised master plans include land classifications, natural, cultural, and recreational resource management objectives, recreation facility needs, and special topics such as invasive species management and threatened and endangered species habitat. This process will be conducted over the next two years.  

The updates will combine John W. Flannagan Lake and North Fork of Pound River Lake Master Plans into one Regional Master Plan and Integrated Environmental Assessment.

Comments may be submitted online or by mailing comments. Only written comments will be accepted. The comment period ends October 8, 2020. Written comments can be submitted by email to CELRH-MP-Flannagan or by mail to the address below.
