You are invited to participate in a public meeting regarding preparation of a Regional Master Plan and Integrated Environmental Assessment for fifteen projects in the Muskingum River Basin. 

A Master Plan is the strategic land use management document that guides the management and development of all recreational, natural, and cultural resources within the water resource development project for the next 15 to 25 years. 

Public participation is critical to the successful revision of the Master Plan.  USACE manages these projects in collaboration with the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District which manages over 50,000 acres in the watershed.  This Master Plan will address lands that are managed by USACE.
