USACE announces Cecil M. Harden Lake Shoreline Management Plan update

Louisville District
Published March 27, 2023
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Louisville District is in the process of updating the Shoreline Management Plan for Cecil M. Harden Lake located in Rockville, Indiana.
The Cecil M. Harden Shoreline Management Plan is being updated due to USACE assuming sole responsibility of the program. The purpose of the USACE Shoreline Management Program is to protect and manage shorelines of all Civil Works water resource development projects under USACE jurisdiction in a manner that promotes the safe and healthful use by the public while maintaining environmental safeguards to ensure a quality resource for use by the public. The objective of all management actions is to achieve balance between permitted private uses and resource protection for public use.
The Louisville District will be hosting two open houses to provide the public with an opportunity to comment on the new Shoreline Management Plan. The public comment period will be open until April 26, 2023.
A draft copy of the Shoreline Management Plan can be viewed at the following link: Copies will be made available for review at both open houses.
