HUNTINGTON, W.Va – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will hold a public meeting to inform the public and seek their input regarding potential changes to the winter drawdown process at the John W. Flannagan Dam, located in Dickenson County, Virginia, on Sept. 27, 2018 at 6:30 p.m. at the Conference Center at the Breaks Interstate Park, 627 Commission, Cir., Breaks, Va.
An appraisal completed in 2017 identified a potential opportunity to optimize the current winter drawdown process at Flannagan Dam to extend the whitewater season and allow for additional downstream recreation opportunities.
To modify the winter drawdown process, an analysis must first be conducted. An important part of the analysis is input provided by the public and local stakeholders. This analysis would evaluate operational parameters, formulate alternative strategies to balance competing needs, and assess potential impacts associated with modifying the winter drawdown process in accordance with National Environmental Policy Act.
