Lake Mead Low Water Plan Public Meeting
 
Date Start Time End Time Location
10/11/2017 6:00 PM 8:00 PM Mohave County Library, Kingman Branch
3269 North Burbank Street
Kingman, Arizona
Please join National Park Service staff to discuss the development of a plan to address operational needs for Lake Mead in the event that water elevation decreases below 1,050 feet.
 
Description:
Lake Mead National Recreation Area has been operating under a Low Water Amendment to its General Management Plan since 2005 because of persistent drought that has lowered the water level of Lake Mead. The current plan addresses management down to a lake elevation of 1,050 feet. The current water elevation at Lake Mead is 1,081 feet. Bureau of Reclamation projections over the next 24 months suggest levels could decline to 1,069 feet.

An environmental assessment is being prepared for a second General Management Plan Amendment to guide operations down to a lake elevation of 950 feet. There are no projections that indicate the lake will reach 950 feet, but park officials are preparing the planning document to identify steps necessary for continued operation at each of the lake's access sites at various elevations. The location and size of lake access facilities will be consistent with the zoning and density goals and the objectives of the Lake Management Plan.

The environmental assessment will provide a decision-making framework that analyzes all reasonable alternatives to meet the objectives of the proposal; evaluate potential issues and impacts to resources and values; and identify mitigation measures to lessen the degree or extent of these impacts.

Because public participation is essential to the success of the planning process, the National Park Service encourages the public to comment during the 30-day public scoping period.

Lake Mead Low Water Plan Public Meeting
 
Date Start Time End Time Location
12/19/2018 3:00 PM 5:00 PM MST Meadview Civic Association
247 East Meadview Boulevard
Meadview, Arizona 86444
Please join National Park Service staff to discuss the development of a plan to address operational needs for Lake Mead in the event that water elevation decreases below 1,050 feet.
 
Description:
The National Park Service is seeking public comment on an environmental assessment for a General Management Plan Amendment to address low-water conditions at Lake Mead. The plan would provide a long-term strategy for addressing operational needs to maintain lake access and provide safe and diverse recreational opportunities at lake elevations above 950 feet. The plan will lead to decision-making regarding the suitability and feasibility of the continued use of existing marinas, launch ramps, and other water-based visitor facilities, and identify steps necessary for their continued operation, if possible.

Because public participation is essential to the success of the planning process, the National Park Service encourages the public to comment on the plan. Members of the National Park Service and Bureau of Reclamation will share the planning process at a community meeting in Meadview.
