The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is drafting an updated management plan for Fort Randall Dam and Lake Francis Case.  Cody Wilson is the natural resource manager for the Fort Randall Project, and he says the new plan redefines who manages the land around the dam and lake…

 

The new plan will update the boundaries between the land operated by the Corps and the land managed by the South Dakota Department of Game, Fish & Parks…

 

Wilson says the land use changes will help land management efforts by balancing conservation with an acceptable amount of public use…

 

The plan has been under consideration since 2009 and Wilson hopes to have the final plan in effect by the end of this year.
