Planning team members Ashley Stephens, Rodney Parker, Brian Lopez, and Christy Stefanides along with Operations and Real Estate team members attended the Summersville Lake Master Plan Public Workshop.  WV Department of Natural Resources partnered with the Corps on this effort.  The workshop focused on three topics including the Wildlife Management Area, Lake and Water Access, and Recreational Use and Development. The original Master Plan was developed by the District in the 1960s. The Master Plan is used by the Corps as guidance on how to best manage lake resources.  This strategic document guides the lake's recreational, natural, and cultural resources, providing a vision for the future.  Since 1960, there has been significant changes at Summersville Lake, not only in the development of facilities, but recreational use patterns as well, leading the Corps to realize the need to update this important document. The Huntington District is now in the initial stages of revising the Master Plan.
